Athens Avalon Greenspace Project
The Athens Avalon Greenspace is a project begun by neighbors of a steep, undeveloped City right of way located at Athens St. and Avalon Ave. in the Excelsior District of San Francisco. It has been supported by the S.F. Department of Public Works, the San Francisco Parks Alliance and many volunteers and donors from the neighborhood and beyond. Its goal is to turn a neighborhood eyesore, weed patch and dumping ground into a congenial, attractive terraced open space with a variety of interesting, mostly drought tolerate plantings.
