Old Trellis Removed from Esmeralda/Winfield Mini-Park



Although we were warned this would happen, and although funding is now in place to provide for replacement, this is still a tough sight to see: Yesterday workers began removing the decaying trellis from the Esmeralda/Winfield Mini-Park.


While we await more detail on plans to replace the trellis, we can also begin moving through the Kübler-Ross Stages of Grief and Loss. (Current status: Bargaining).

Beyond that, we can also distract ourselves by reading the big feature SFist just published on the fabulousness of the entire Esmeralda stair corridor. It combines a little bit of history, with a little bit of Bernalwood’s previous coverage, with a bunch of pretty pictures, and a whole lot of appreciation. Enjoy:

  1. NOT SO FAST! The funding is NOT in place. We are working with the city to get an estimate to replace the trellis AND the planter box AND the benches—all of which cannot be replaced individually because of the design of the structure. We will keep Bernalwood informed. It ain’t over ’til it’s over!
