Beach Chalet Lawsuit Snuffed

Opponents of plans to renovate the Beach Chalet athletic fields at the western end of Golden Gate Park from grass to artificial turf — part of a major change to the fields — were dealt a setback in December. A Superior Court judge dismissed the lawsuit, ruling that the San Francisco Recreation and ParkDepartment plans adhered to environmental guidelines.

“We were hoping for a different outcome,” attorney for the plaintiffs Richard Drury told CBS San Francisco.

The $14 million renovation is being jointly funded by Rec and Park and the City Fields Foundation. They expect to begin construction in 2014 and reopen the fields the following year.
