This is a relief. To do otherwise would allow the… Read story

Harrop: People have right to enjoy parks

April 27, 2024, 6:01am Columns

Public parks belong to the public, right? A billionaire can’t cordon off an acre of Golden Gate Park for his private party. But can a poor person — or anyone who claims they can’t afford a home — take over public spaces where children play and families experience nature? Read story
