New Year, Stronger Initiatives: Please Support NPC in 2010

Hello Friends,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope you are well rested and had a great holiday. The team at

NPC is ready to keep San Francisco parks a top priority in 2010! We would love your help!

The staff at NPC will be working toward a number of exciting milestones, and continuing our important initiatives and advocacy work in the new year.  You can look forward to:

  • PlayDay 2010: NPC will kick off the next round of reports cards for the City’s 144 playgrounds, which will identify the best places for our kids to play and where the city can do better in providing safe playgrounds.
  • NPC is also working to gather suggestions and implement creative solutions to help address the budget challenges for the Recreation and Park Department. We are committed to helping preserve core services for our neighborhood parks.
  • Building on the success of our 2009 Open Space Workshops, NPC remains committed to ensure City policy is real and action oriented. Our efforts lead San Francisco’s vision for today, tomorrow and the next 100 years.
