You may have read that the Shoe Garden has been removed, either temporarily or permanently. The Local Addition reports that Rec and Park’s Deputy Director of Public Affairs Connie Chan stated the removal was permanent. The decision was made based on a variety of factors, including limited park resources and the plans for a new or renovated bathroom at Alamo Square, to be completed in 2013.
ASNA is committed to finding a plan to restore the Alamo Square Shoe Garden once our new bathroom is in place. We will begin a planning process this year. Stay tuned!
