Fort Kid Forever! At least 30 volunteers swarmed the retro version of Fort Kid to prune and update today at 9 a.m. (until 2 p.m),to improve it for kids and send a message to the city that they'd like to keep the playground. The old park was built by volunteers in 1991, and City Parks and Recreation has said it's now too expensive to maintain. New playground equipment is in place with a ribbon-cutting set for July 8. Tomato Head owner Mahasti Vafaie and Sarah Bush of the local Slow Food chapter cajoled their contacts into showing up. At first, the effort was going to be completely surreptitious, but Joe Walsh, Director of City Parks was okay with the effort when she let him know, says Vafaie. A Parks security fellow who stopped by was friendly and calm. "But we still have the problem that the city won't unlock the bathroom," says Vafaie.
