With over 400+ Potrero neighbors and friends of Starr King Open Space in attendance, we had an unbelievable turnout to celebrate our 30th anniversary with a special Sunset Piano event. A huge thank you to everyone who came out, and a heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful local musicians who performed. Given the tremendous success, we plan to make this an annual event atop your neighborhood open space.
