Pirates in Glen Canyon! Theater group Peripatetic Players presents interactive family event at Glen Canyon Park on Sat July 14, 3pm. From website: pcard-front (1)

Sail the high seas with Captain Samuel Peaches and his crew! You’ll help these eccentric performing pirates chart their course though fantastic adventures inspired by pirate myths, legends and stories. Meet creatures and characters of the sea, sail to raucous pirate towns, sing along with swashbuckling sea chanteys, search for buried treasure, and avoid cursed doubloons — but be careful! Danger lurks in every port, and at the crest of every wave. And since the audience will choose the course, no two shows will be the same!

Bringing Homes to Balboa Reservoir

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, May 31, 2018
Located on a 17-acre parcel close to a BART and Muni Metro station, City College and other amenities, the Balboa Reservoir is an important site for new mixed-income housing in San Francisco. As part of the city’s Public Land for Housing program, a development team was recently selected to create up to 1,100 homes, a 2-acre central park and several mini-parks, childcare and more on the site. Join us to hear about the project’s vision, timeline and the next steps in the process.
