Aside from my annoying addiction to alliteration, we are suffering withdrawal from lack of a local park in the Northern part of the Portola. We are all definitely looking forward to the completion of the Palega Park updates. I was fortunate enough to take a walk this lunch and bump into project owner Toks Ajike. He was kind enough to let me take a quick wander onsite.
Armed with only my Nokia 1020, I was able to snap some great photos. The park should re-open in November and the editor of the Portola Planet is on the community committee and will update the blog as soon as we know any planned opening party.
For now, enjoy the pictures below. I was especially surprised when I saw there is a community garden as part of the grounds. When I asked who was going to be maintaining this, I was told it’s up to us! So look out for future requests for green fingered Portolans to take advantage of the numerous planters you can see in the photos below.
