The trail connecting Billy Goat Hill with Walter Haas Playground opened as planned, sometime this week – and just in time for the Memorial Day weekend.  The trail was a project of San Francisco Department of Recreation and Parks. (See Glen Park News, Summer 2015, p. 14 for details and background; also a brief posting on this newsletter on May 21.)

The improved trail, which replaces an informal “social” trail, is a pleasant connection between the Beacon Street side of Billy Goat Hill and the Walter Haas Playground.  It also offers sweeping views of Glen Park, Noe Valley, and the City.  Residents are already enjoying it.
