Local artists and business owners, J. Angel Garcia and Brandon Grimaldi, are in the final stages of completing a flagstone labyrinth on the upper hillside patio at the North end of Tunnel Top Park.
In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth (Ancient Greek: Λαβύρινθος labúrinthos) was an elaborate, confusing structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur, the monster eventually killed by the hero Theseus.
After the spring equinox, come stop by and solve the Tunnel Top Park Labyrinth. With no pesky Minotaurs mucking about, it’s fun for all ages!
Tunnel Top Park, serving both Potrero Hill and Dogpatch, is located on the corner of 25th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Tunnel Top Park is a volunteer driven community greening project, focused on transforming a once vacant lot into a vibrant green space.
Undulating Landscape is a project of the Tunnel Top Steering Committee, California College of Arts and the San Francisco Planning Department. The project designed and fabricated by students at CCA is funded by a grant by San Francisco Pavement to Parks Program.
Pavement to Parks Professional Practice Interns Fernanda Bernardes and Anh Vo, under the supervision of Meghan Dorrian (CCA) and Robin Abad (SF Pavement to Parks), led the design refinement and implementation of ‘interim amenities’ at Tunnel Top Park in the Summer of 2016. The concept design, ‘Undulating Landscape’ was selected by a Jury comprised of Tunnel Top Park community members and CCA faculty from several generated during the Spring 2016 Building Technology Seminar. During the late Spring and early Summer 2016, the Tunnel Top Park Steering Committee met routinely with the CCA / Planning Department team to refine a site-wide plan and design for ‘Undulating Landscape,’ a modular prototype that incorporates seating, fencing, and lighting for deployment across the park. The summer 2016 design-build studio fabricated and installed “Undulating Landscape” at the Park in August 2016.
