Miyashita Park will soon become a giant Nike playground

Nike is building a huge indoor playground at Miyashita Park. They just started construction, and people are sitting in to protest. Am I against the fact that a giant American corporation is turning the park where I first smoked pot and made out with a boy into a commercial enterprise? Maybe. I’m also sad for the wonderfully content homeless community under blue vinyl makeshift roofs who obviously had to relocate in order to accommodate this project. However, I also welcome the addition of a quality rock climbing gym in an easily accessible location. Feeling a little torn.

  1. There is already a really good rock climbing gym 5 mins from Miyashita Park (at the end of cat street) so Nike’s project is definitely not needed in that area…
