Glen Canyon Park was on Mayor Gavin Newsom’s mind Tuesday – but not for something about which to boast. He was troubled about the anti-Semitic graffiti found there by a city worker Monday morning.
Recreation and Park Department painters promptly covered the offending symbols, and police have stepped up patrols, Newsom said.
The vandalism follows a similar incident in November, when the children’s playground was defaced with swastikas.
“San Francisco’s Glen Park playground was defaced with symbols of hatred and profanity. San Francisco is a city that embraces people of all faiths and this type of act has no place in our community. I strongly condemn this act of hatred and intolerance,” Newsom said.
