  • Vanished Golden Gate Park(WNP Event)

    Jul 26, 2018 7:00pm-8:30pm (Thursday) at Western Neighborhoods Project
    SOLD OUT

    Renowned Golden Gate Park historian Christopher Pollock will join Woody LaBounty in a conversation and presentation on the vanished landmarks, structures, and oddities of the park. From an iron suspension bridge over Middle Drive, to a casino next to the Conservatory of Flowers, to deer, sheep, and kangaroos, we will explore the park of the past using historical photographs, maps, and postcards. With the 150th anniversary of Golden Gate Park’s creation just two years away, we will also speculate on its future and what may be next to vanish.
