You may have already heard (or not... if you live in Crocker-Amazon), but on Saturday, they started to close down half of Dolores Park for renovations that (hopefully) will only last about six months, to be followed by the second half of the park closing sometime around August. So, what does this mean for you and your paper-bagged tallboy? These 13 things, that's what.
1. The section they're closing now is the Northern-half of the park
That means all of the courts and Hipster Hill will be fenced off and inaccessible.
2. Everyone will have to share the area near the playground and the Southeast overlook (aka the Fruit Shelf/Gay Beach)
Be prepared for children's birthday parties and people in their underwear. Hopefully not both at once.
3. There won't be any room for soccer games or frisbee
Unless you want to stumble over an entire-park's worth of people in half the space (Editor's Note: You don't want to do that).
