Šárka Volejníková is helping to turn run-down Hilltop Park in San Francisco's Bayview District into a vibrant center for the neighborhood and nature. This UC Berkeley Extension instructor works at Miller Company Landscape Architects, and is pleased to be doing environmentally sensitive work that is influenced by the surrounding community.
Local community group Parks 94214 has been a vocal and enthusiastic proponent in refurbishing this park and others in the Bayview. Šárka let us tag along on a workday to see how construction is progressing. We'll revisit the park later in the year when it has more plants and play structures, but here's an inside look at her work-in-progress.
