Two years later, are parks making the grade? 

If you were a teacher and you graded about half your classroom of 125 playgrounds with a C or lower two years ago, would you think they’ve improved?

What about the half that got an A or a B -- are they still shining?

You can try your luck with the nonprofit Neighborhood Parks Council two-year report card they’re releasing on April 8 with Rec and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg and Supervisor John Avalos.

The parks in Avalos’ southeast district picked up some of the lower scores in the annual City Controller’s report about open spaces.

The 2010 Playground Report Card is different from the council’s annual ParkScan report because it’s playground-specific and only comes out every two years.

The report card's release is at McLaren Park at 10 a.m., another park known for needing improvements, with a volunteer clean-up you can RSVP for here.
