Phil Ginsburg, General Manager of the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department, will discuss the benefits of nature in his talk, Increasing Access to the World’s Oldest Miracle Drug

With more than 4,100 acres and over 220 parks under its jurisdiction, the Recreation and Park Department stewards some of the most spectacular public spaces in the world, including Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower and the Palace of Fine Arts. Under Phil’s leadership, San Francisco became the first city in the United States where 100% of its residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park. During Ginsburg’s tenure, San Francisco has been consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top five park systems.

Phil has led his organization through transformational improvements to the public realm and he has made equity and increasing access to public recreation and to nature, the department’s primary objective. Phil has built a financially sustainable model for San Francisco’s park system through ballot advocacy, the strategic use of public-private partnerships and philanthropy, creative revenue strategies, technology and administrative efficiencies.

This is a regular membership meeting of The Rotary Club of San Francisco, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members, and guests.
