Waterfall to Be Restored in SF’s National AIDS Memorial Grove

Two new sites are to be added to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Last week, the restoration of the Murphy Windmill made some progress; the crews replaced the refurbished 64-ton dome on top. The windmill is expected to be up and running by 2012.

On Saturday, crews also began a new project to restore one of the park’s original waterfalls, which once ran through what is now the National AIDS Memorial Grove. The project should be ready in time for World AIDS Day on December 1st.

“The grove is supposed to be a living memorial,” explained Grove Executive Director John Cunningham. “The water is another aspect of bringing life back into the grove.”

According to the National AIDS Memorial website, the eastern side of the park was home to three waterfalls in the early 20th century. They were removed during a drought, meeting the same fate as numerous other unsustainable water features throughout the city.

The restored waterfall will recycle its water, dropping 40 feet into a vanishing pool, only to reappear in a creek which will return to the top, Cunningham explained. Funded by private donations, the project will cost $80,000.

Cunningham said: “This project will bring the healing property if water into our national memorial for HIV and AIDS.”
