Today is #HarveyMilkDay, where we remember the late San Francisco politician who gave his life in service to this city and fighting for civil rights. From his dedication as a neighborhood activist in the Castro, to becoming the first openly gay person elected into California public office, he continues to serve as an inspiration both locally and nationally. We remember him today with the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts, which was renamed for him in 1979. The building’s redesign in 2009 pays homage to Milk with his words, “The American Dream starts with the neighborhoods…” memorialized upon the building’s Eastside.

In addition, in honor of this day and the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the Harvey Milk Photo Center is extending its deadline to May 23 for artists’ submissions for its upcoming exhibit that will celebrate the LGBTQ community. Showcase your talent with your best contemporary artwork or submit historical images, documents or artworks from the 1970s which reflected the lives and events of the LGBTQ community, including of Harvey Milk himself.
To submit and for more information, visit harveymilkphotocenter.org

In honor of the City Parks Alliance’s Infrastructure Week, we'll be highlighting some #SF parks that play an important role in spurring economic growth/development, & creating more resilient communities w/ green infrastructure systems! Our first stop is the new look McLaren Community Garden! This site not only provides an outlet for urban agriculture & composting, but located just north of the community gardens, @SFWater constructed new rain gardens! The project developed 2 distinct green infrastructure locations that improves community spaces & accessibility. Of course, these terraced rain gardens in McLaren Park will also manage 600,000 gallons of stormwater each year from approximately 1.5 acres of impervious surface & provide a pedestrian connection to McLaren Park from Leland Ave! #california #northerncalifornia #bayarea #sanfrancisco #sf #sfrecpark #getoutandplay #infrastructure #infrastructureweek #parkinfrastructure #garden #communitygarden #urbanagriculture #agriculture #rainwater #ecofriendly #greeninfrastructure

We're excited to share I Left My Park in San Francisco's 6th podcast episode: Sliding Back in Time!
Baseball has always been considered America's pastime, and one group in Golden Gate Park takes the game to historic levels. Bay Area Vintage Base Ball League plays by the rules of 1886, where each team is outfitted in uniforms and equipment replicated from the era. Today, we're going back in time to explore the gentleman's game.
