Upgrades on table for Bierman Park

Sue Bierman Park, named for the former supervisor killed in an August 2006 car accident, could soon see $1.8 million in upgrades following a vote today.

The 5.3-acre park was founded as Ferry Park but renamed in 2007 after Bierman, who was a member of the Planning Commission in the 1950s and 1960s before her election to the Board of Supervisors in 1992, where she served until 2000.

The first phase of improvements to the park, which Rec and Park and planning commissioners will consider today, would include further demolition of old structures, new foliage, Americans with Disabilities Act improvements and relocation of the Korean Memorial sculpture.

A second phase would include more sculptures, further demolition and landscape work.
