The City is opening all these cool, newly-renovated recreation centers in San Francisco, but doesn’t have enough cool stuff to put inside them.
The San Francisco Parks Trust says city budget cuts have kept the Recreation and Parks Department from filling five recreation centers serving tots to seniors with the right amount of facilities and equipment.
The five centers are located at 1900 Geary Blvd, 280 Olympia Way, 50 Scott St., 236 Monterey Blvd., and at Foerster and Melrose Avenue.
To raise revenue, the SFPT has established the GearUp Fund http://gearupfund.org/ seeking donations.
Each center has special needs that include furniture, exercise equipment, lab computers, audio visual equipment and Tiny Tot play equipment, according to the Parks Trust.
Meanwhile, there will be a chance to check out two of the centers on Saturday. A grand re-opening is scheduled for the Sunnyside Conservatory at 236 Monterey Blvd. Also, an open house is set to take place at the Midtown Terrace Playground at 280 Olympia Way.
