GROWING TOGETHER DAY
Growing Together Day was created by local Bayview artist Joe Colmenares. Colmenares, who specializes in murals, grew up in Bayview and was ecstatic about creating a vivid art piece for his local state park. “I think that’s our duty and our mission—to change how folks view the Bayview and Candlestick and nature and this particular park. Because these are beautiful places where beautiful people live, people who want to and continue to give back.” Colmenares was contracted by Parks California to create a mural on the main entrance kiosk, a mural that would capture highlights of park’s natural beauty. With help from a planning team that consisted of partners from California State Parks, Golden Gate Park Conservancy, and Parks California, Growing Together Day was envisioned.
