Esprit Park is so beautiful and why change it? Over the last 8 years of living in the neighborhood and using the park, I have watched it being shaved back incrementally but constantly until all the low brush is gone. This was habitat and nesting for so many birds, bugs and the living things and one of the features that made the park so lush. Now, I understand the sequoias are going to be removed because they cannot be maintained. I find this very sad. This will spatially and psychologically change the park into nothing special, for sure. Those trees are hundreds of years old.
I think that this should be carefully considered as something of value and worth nurturing/putting the effort not keeping the ones that we can even if it is for a mere 50 more years.
I agree with Robin that Esprit Park functions well as it is with a nice co-mingling of users of all kinds. We cannot please all the people all the time and there is a really good thing going on at Esprit.....why disrupt the beauty of the park and the special interactions of the people that use it?

For one, I absolutely abhor and fear the idea of parks like Esprit and Jackson being modified to add dog runs, because most dogs don't like them; most dog owners don't like them. They can become crowded, leading to more dog confrontations and overwhelmed by dog walkers with large groups of dogs. As it is now at Esprit Park - and thanks to a petition some years ago by 1,100 people who use the park - dogs and people and children have managed to co-mingle and/or have run of the park at different times. Dogs need more than a small area to run, and many dogs just want to walk around the path and smell the foilage. I've been going there for nine years and have seen only minor problems. What is also lovely about Esprit is its close-to-nature feel, without a lot of artificial enhancements, plazas or fenced off areas. If there are more people who feel they need to have an area free from dogs, then I agree with Sam Lord, make half the park off-leash dogs and the other half no dogs. But don't change the basic nature of this lovely park. Do that in the new Mission Bay development areas sprouting all over.

My ideal future for Esprit park would be a designated off-leash dog area on about half the park, and no dogs on the other half. Just put a row of hedges down the middle and put up signs. Done.

Yes - there needs to be an area available for humans only - without fear of dog attack and dog crap. I don't even consider going to the park as it has been overtaken by dogs. Love the idea to split it.
