> Friday, January 20, 2006: One Thousand And Seventeen Acres Of Nature
At the corner of Union Square, where we were yesterday, hop on Bus Line N towards Ocean Beach, and 20 minutes later, you'll find yourself in one of the largest urban parks in the world, Golden Gate Park, with its 1,017 acres (I just checked!) - or 411 hectares if you prefer. Twenty minutes on a bus, for a radical change of scenery, from what feels like 160,000 people around Union Square to an actual 160,000 trees, according to the National Park Services. So... People? Trees? You pick! (although, of course, you can also go to the park with your favorite people).
You have a pretty picture…I’d be curious to see a close-up shot of the statue, maybe on a future post. (submitted on January 21, 2006)
And I'd be curious too to see what the statue looks like a little bit closer. (submitted on January 21, 2006)
The statue is a 1889 work by local artist, Douglas Tilden. It represents a baseball player and you can find a close-up here.
