The playground behind the Bernal Heights library is extremely popular, but a sad combination of meathead vandalism and bureaucratic neglect have combined to make the playground a less happy place.
Over the weekend, Neighbor Ron wrote to Bernalwood about the latest affront:
One of the child swings is missing from the playground.
It was here yesterday.
Also, the slide hasn’t been replaced since its torching last February. *ARG!
Its time for Bernal parents to email Parks n Rec!
Great idea. You can file complaints about broken equipment at the Bernal library playground via the 311 System, here.
Also try the ParkScan system, here.
And while you’re at it, it’s also worth shooting Supervisor David Campos an email to see if he can lubricate the wheels of progress.
UPDATE: In the comments below, a Bernalwood reader helpfully informs us that the swing was not vandalized this weekend; instead, it was cut by the San Francisco Fire Department in order to rescue an older child who had gotten stuck in the kiddie swing. Thank you, Reader Adam!
