2010 Playground Report Card Released at Play Day
April 8, 2010, San Francisco: The 2010 San Francisco Playground Report Card was released at Play Day at McLaren Park. The report grades the 130+ public playgrounds in San Francisco for safety and maintenance. Local playground advocates Meredith Thomas, NPC Executive Director, Phil Ginsburg, General Manager of the Recreation and Park Department, and Supervisor John Avalos joined community volunteers and local children at Play Day to celebrate the new Report Card.
“The Playground Report Card is a wonderful communication tool that helps us all understand how well we are meeting the needs of young children and families in San Francisco,” said Meredith Thomas, NPC Executive Director. “At the Neighborhood Parks Council, we believe that every child deserves a playground near their home where they can play safety and make friends. The Report Card helps us prioritize our advocacy and organizing work so that we can direct resources to the playgrounds that need the most attention.”
