Love Your Park Day

Picnic in McLaren Park this May

Picnic in McLaren Park this May

McLaren Park is San Francisco’s second largest public park and it’s right in our back yard. The Portola Planet has just learned about a city wide day of activities called “Love Your Parks Day” and there are a series of events taking place in McLaren Park. So if you want a day out in the fresh air, taking a nature walk, eating a picnic and helping remodel a part of the park, keep on reading.

Taking place on Saturday, May 19th, in McLaren Park, there will be three nature walks culminating in a picnic lunch and restoration of the Turtle play area. McLaren Park Collaborative, who are co-hosting the event with the San Francisco Parks Alliance, are also hoping to add a bike ride into the list of activities too. This will be a great day to explore the park with those who know it well and learn how the different nature walks connect the three playgrounds.

If you would like to participate or even help out in organization of the day’s activities, register your interest at http://www.loveyourparksday.org/ If you’d like to actually lend a hand, please contact [email protected] or call (415) 871 5881. Volunteers helping restore the sand pit will receive a free T-shirt. The map below highlights all three tour starting points, and the Turtle play sand pit.
