The San Francisco Department of Public Works took over care of the city’s street trees a couple years ago. Here is that voter-approved proposition in action — a big oak tree in the Circular Ribbon Garden needed a good deal of attention, and a request recently brought DPW workers out to work on it. They did a great job. Thank you DPW!

In 2011, after three years of intense work by a roster of some 35+ volunteers, Circular Avenue was changed from an unofficial dump into a beautiful SF Park: the Circular Avenue Ribbon Garden, so-named because it consists of the 6′ of land between the curb and the 280 Freeway fence, running the 3/4 mile stretch from Monterey Blvd. to Havelock, near CCSF. It’s cleaner now, but needs regular attention. And we have plans for the future!

The long narrow planted area between Circular Avenue and I-280 freeway was dedicated as park space in 2011, and is maintained with local volunteer efforts.
