For those who love to skate (or want to learn!) the Winter Park Ice Rink returns for its second year November 22!
UPDATE: The Bi-Rite Cafe is now open!
Original post: The new Bi-Rite Cafe kiosk in Civic Center Plaza is hosting its Grand Opening on October 23! Normal hours will commence the following day: Monday through Friday, 7am-5pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm. The menu will feature a selection of sandwiches, salads and, of course, soft serve!
Civic Center public spaces are home to two JCDecaux Public Toilets – one in UN Plaza, and one in Civic Center Plaza at Grove Street and Larkin Street. Both JCDecaux toilets in the Civic Center public spaces are staffed each day through the Pit Stop Program.
Today, Public Works has announced that the agency, in partnership with the JCDecaux outdoor furniture company, is embarking on a once-in-a-generation replacement of San Francisco’s on-street public toilets and multi-function kiosks. After an invitation-only design competition among San Francisco architects and industrial designers, three finalists have been chosen.
“The trio of conceptual designs will be on display for community input on how San Francisco can re-envision these public amenities to meet the functional needs and aesthetics of our 21st-century iconic city,” said Public Works Director Mohammed Nuru.
We hope you’ll check out the new designs and provide your input!
The designs will be on display today through April 30th at the Main Library in Civic Center and for one day, on Wednesday, April 25th, at the Heart of the City Farmers Market in UN Plaza.
Members of the public can submit a comment form at these locations, online or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is 10 a.m. Monday, April 30. The comments will help inform the design competition jury’s decision.
