PARK(ing) - Mayor Newsom's Spot

PARK(ing) Spaces

In the mayor's parking spot at city hall, wheelbarrows representing the 11 political districts of San Francisco are planted with dahlias, the official city flower. Visitors add soil to their district's wheelbarrow and write comments to the supervisors about parks. Dahlias and comments were presented to the supervisors at the end of the installation.
