Golden Gate Park - Stow Lake (1941)

 

 

History

A man-made lake completed in 1893, Stow Lake has been a part of San Francisco and Golden Gate Park for more than 11 decades. During this time, it has provided the people of San Francisco with a nearby place to escape from their crowded neighborhoods and homes, and enjoy the outdoors.

We plan to showcase vintage postcards and photographs of Stow Lake and Strawberry Hill throughout these many decades of public enjoyment. Some of these pictures, together with a few short explanatory sentences, will comprise a laminated display on our café tabletops. In this way, visitors can learn a bit of history and take in the nostalgic pictures while they enjoy their lunch.

Our historic renovations will include restoration of an historic building that is a gem of Golden Gate Park and the whole of San Francisco. We relish honoring the past while making the historic building functional and attractive. We invite the public to enjoy every step of this heartfelt process by checking back to our blog page, Facebook and Twitter, which will all chronicle ongoing improvements at Stow Lake.
