New Law Targets Camping at City Parks, Which Is Already Illegal

Last night, a collection of hardy souls bundled up in their warmest Tahoe-worthy gear and prepared to bed down in hipster playground Dolores Park. It's not clear how many stayed the night, though by midnight posts were still being made to Facebook from sleeping bags, one with the tag, “We're still here everybody.”

The sleep-in was an act of protest, meant to be in solidarity with the people encamped across town — the ones who sleep in parks full-time. Camping in city parks is already illegal, but a law up for consideration by the Board of Supervisors today would, for the first time, declare San Francisco's parks officially closed between midnight and 5 a.m.
