Dolores Park was trashed yesterday for the Fourth of July, writes the Chronicle.
Four gardeners worked five hours each this morning, starting at 6 a.m., to clean up the mess. They filled 60 60-gallon trash bags with items like sandwich wrappers, food containers, empty beer boxes and plastic cups.
The crowd, which was estimated to number about 4,000 over the day, left behind “a mountain of garbage,” Denny Kern, operations manager for the Recreation and Park Department, told the Chronicle.
This isn’t the first time the park was found littered in recent months. Just this April, neighbors awoke to find it trashed on Earth Day.
