Saturday Afternoon: Let Your Kids Frolic in the Junipero Serra School Playground

JSerraYard

Casey Berkovitz, an organizer with the San Francisco Shared Schoolyard Project, invites one and all to the grand opening of the Junipero Serra Elementary School playground, weekend edition:

We’re organizing an event at Junipero Serra Elementary School (625 Holly Park Circle) on Saturday January 16th, from 11 am to 1 pm.

Our organization, the Shared Schoolyard Project, has worked to make the schoolyard there available to the public on weekends, and we are hosting an event to celebrate that and inform people in the neighborhood.

Join Supervisors David Campos and Mark Farrell and the San Francisco Shared Schoolyard Project at Junipero Serra Elementary School on Saturday, January 16th for an exciting kick-off event marking the schoolyard’s grand opening.

The community-driven event will feature a ribbon cutting ceremony, free lunch, and activities for the whole community. Activities will include painting a mandala with Little Artistas, books with the Bernal Heights branch library, and soccer and poetry with America SCORES! Find out more and RSVP right here.

  1. This is probaby much more Farrell work. Campos hasn’t done a lot for Bernal or Mission unless it’s BS legislation that doesn’t concern us. Thanks that this clown will be gone soon.

  2. I think the idea is excellent. It’s funny how government agencies tend to create their own fiefdoms and restrict use of their facilities to other agencies. There shouldn’t even have to be an organization or a ribbon cutting or anything to allow schoolyards to be used by the public on weekends. It’s a DUH! situation. Yeah, there are liability issues, but there is always a liability issue in any city park as well.
