Harvey Milk Promenade Park Grand Reopening
May 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Harvey Milk Promenade Park will celebrate its grand re-opening and honor three community leaders: Sabreena, Tim Patton and the late Dr. Angela Bowen (links to their bios here). Their plaques will be displayed on the park’s honor wall. Improvements to the park, including outdoor seating, solar charging stations and a ping pong table, also will be unveiled.
On September 2, 2016, the DLBA awarded the City a $10,000 grant for the Augmented Reality project at Harvey Milk Park. Augmented reality (AR) utilizes a person’s smart phone or tablet to “augment” the real-world environment with computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, or GPS data. The City’s purpose for piloting the use of AR in Harvey Milk Park is to improve awareness about the cultural, historical and social significance of Harvey Milk and local LGBTQ leaders, in a creative, virtual, unobtrusive way. AR can also be used to provide virtual signage, wayfinding, and information about City services among other uses. As a supporter of the Harvey Milk Park and it’s contribution to the Downtown community, the DLBA is excited to see the new park additions and final app launch.
