The first half of San Francisco’s under-construction plaza dedicated to leather culture is now accessible to passersby on foot or bicycle. The remaining section isn’t expected to be complete until late April or early May.
But due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, and the imposition of a shelter-in-place order for city residents through at least May 3, it is unclear when a dedication ceremony can be held for what is the world’s first public parklet honoring the leather and kink communities.
“We are planning to push our celebration back from April to mid-May (this is a placeholder and will need to be confirmed),” Mark Bonsignore, a parks and place project manager with the San Francisco Parks Alliance, told the Bay Area Reporter this week. “The Friends of Eagle Plaza (FoEP) have been finalizing the group’s bylaws and fiscal sponsorship and should have more information on grand opening in the coming weeks.”
