The SF Rec and Park Department wants to bulldoze all the grass at the Beach Chalet Soccer Fields and put in 7 acres of artificial turf and 150,000 watts of stadium lighting --- destroying the habitat and beauty of the western end of Golden Gate Park, next to Ocean Beach.
This environmentally-damaging project is budgeted at $14 million, including a $475,000 restroom renovation!
And yet -- the restroom in the campaign literature looks nothing like the restroom as it is today! What is going on? Follow the presentation to find out -- and then go to www.sfoceanedge.org to learn more about what you can do to protect Golden Gate Park.
