bierman park the urbane grandmotherLet’s face it. The success of a family trip is determined by how well the adults can manage to balance the ratio of kid vs adult activities. Sometimes we luck out and find an activity that appeals equally to both. That’s where the playground comes in. Fresh air. Exercise. Beautiful scenery. And rest for the adults. Our newest playground is on the Embarcadero across from Pier 1 at Washington Street.  It is nestled behind the Embarcadero Center in an area that was once a nondescript plot of land. The ‘Playground in Sue Bierman Park’ is a joint effort of the Barbary Coast Neighborhood Association and Rincon Hill neighbors working with the Parks and Recreation Department. Here is the list of generous donors:
