Pioneer Log Cabin Picnic Area | John F Kennedy Drive, San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Join Park and La Puerta de Oro on March 31, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for a celebration event at the Pioneer Log Cabin Picnic Area, just south of JFK Drive and north of Stow Lake in a joint project to renew and revive Golden Gate Park’s historic “Arch of Colonial Trees.”
La Puerta de Oro, is working with Golden Gate Park staff to gradually replace the original trees as needed. The first new trees to be dedicated will be a magnolia for South Carolina and a hemlock for Pennsylvania.
Planted by the San Francisco Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in 1896, the “Arch of Colonial Trees” is a graceful allée of trees, each representing one of the original thirteen American Colonies.
