Another renaming in Golden Gate Park this week, as reported in the S.F.Chronicle:
‘Mayor Ed Lee has renamed a major road coursing through Golden Gate Park to honor U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Lee and other city officials participated in a ceremonial renaming of Middle Drive East to Nancy Pelosi Drive on Monday. The mayor says the road was renamed to celebrate Pelosi’s 25 years of public service to San Francisco.
The Democratic lawmaker represents California’s 8th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes most of San Francisco including Golden Gate Park.
Lee says the former House Speaker’s leadership has been crucial to preserving public lands and parks, and protecting the San Francisco Bay and surrounding environment.
The road leads to some of the park’s most famous destinations, including the National AIDS Memorial Grove, California Academy of Sciences, Botanical Garden and Japanese Tea Garden.’
