List: Parks for Sale

The city's Recreation and Park department is desperately seeking new revenues to support itself during the city's current budget crisis. What new revenue ideas is it considering?

• Charge rent to homeless people living in Golden Gate Park

• Small fee for looking at trees

• Golf courses. Whatever the question, the answer is "golf courses"

• Sell naming rights to public open spaces. Hello, Getty Gate Park!

• Convert Alamo Square into one giant condo

• Now that the military is out of the Presidio, rent it out to private mercenaries

• Surcharge for living near a rec center

• Smiles are no longer free

• Dig for oil

• Privatize shade

• Double the price of the carousel no one uses

• Put Dolores Park regulars in cages and charge tourists to see the Hipster Zoo
