People came to Mission Dolores Park to beat the heat and take in the sunlight on Monday, June 10, 2019. Multiple child daycare programs walked and gathered around in shady areas for a lunch time break. People brought drinks and picnics and bought ice cream from the park’s vendors. Some high school kids, Sonia Delarios Moran, Layla Wolfe, Najoh Gillette and Kamille Brieze took the opportunity to run through the automatic ground sprinklers and soak their day clothes. Locals to the neighborhood Sietske Tjallingii and Molly Craft rode their bikes to the park and outstretched a yoga mat in the shade and took in the sights, while many others strolled by.
