Fairmount Height Brunch on Billy Goat Hill
Heights Association (FHA) is getting off to an active start. Just six months into
formation, the group is throwing a party to celebrate Autumn and the joy of living. Says Events
Chair Daniel Oppenheim, "The event is an opportunity to enjoy the company of your neighbors
while sharing some food, drinks, conversation, live music and a great view. We do not have an agenda
other than to have fun and connect with others in our local community."
Neighbors will assemble on Saturday, October
10 at 10 a.m. for a potluck brunch atop Billy Goat Hill, the crown jewel of Fairmount
Heights open space. Sweeping views overlooking San Francisco and the bay are enough reason to make
the trek on a Saturday morning. Great food and inviting company will make it all that more
worthwhile. View the event flyer.
Many members of FHA have are connected with Friends of Billy Goat Hill Park and have been working together to influence Rec & Park
progress on the Billy Goat Hill / Walter Haas Park trail project. The upcoming brunch provides an
opportunity for others to see this path and talk about what is taking shape.
