Blue Greenway Kiosk Exhibit
Judy West and Corinne Woods of the Neighborhood Parks Council on opening day on The Bay.
The Mission Bay Public Boat Launch and San Francisco’s Blue Greenway on the waterfront, south of the ATT Ball Park.
Madrina Group, with the help of our many project partners, installed eight new panels of maps and illustrations focused on historic and future changes to San Francisco’s eastern neighborhoods. Some of these projects include the SF Bay Trail, the Blue Greenway and Mission Creek connector trail to the waterfront.
The SF Watershed panel illustrates New Low-Impact Design Guidelines for Storm-Water management that utilize new green technologies to help San Francisco transition into a greener and healthier city for everyone.
Special thanks to the Port of SF, the SF Bay Trail, SF Beautiful and the Neighborhood Parks Council making this educational exhibit a reality!
