Tile Bench in Balboa Park San Francisco Public Art

There are several mosaics throughout the new Balboa Park Playground.  This bench sits on the exterior of the playground and explains about the restoration of the park, it also lists all the donors that helped  to make the project possible.

The mosaic work is by Rachel Rodi.
