The Turtle Was Hot


Marina playground’s turtle sculpture, roasting in our well-deserved newfound sunshine.

Rented some kids today and headed out to two different playgrounds. God the weather was amazing! We slathered on the sunblock.

Joe DiMaggio Playground
— I was really impressed, and as my sister always points out, the location is key because it’s, very close to coffee, namely Cafe Columbus, home of the amazing scherma. Right at Lombard and Chestnut in North Beach.

Marina Playground
— Not having kids, I never really took note of this place, but when pressed remembered there were some bright structures near the Marina library. Wow, it is by far the best playground I’ve been in, but I have to say not as close to good cafes as DiMaggio. Good points: soft squishy tread, lots of structures with interesting details, and neat tile work along the walls. Also near older kid stuff like baseball, basketball, and a soccer field.

    I think I recognize that turtle! Are you talking about Moscone playground on Chestnut?
