Robin Williams is no longer alive, but San Francisco wants to make sure the legendary comedian’s memory will live on.
The city’s parks department recently announced Sharon Meadow at Golden Gate Park will be renamed Robin Williams Meadow, according to a KQED Arts report.
“Robin was one of San Francisco’s cherished sons, whose selfless acts of philanthropy benefited communities across our city,” Mayor Ed Lee said in a statement. “We will forever remember him fondly and the Robin Williams Meadow will be a lasting testament to his legacy.”
The official dedication will happen Sunday during Comedy Day, a free showcase that has taken place at the meadow each year since 1981.
