Billy Goat Hill Trail Planning and Design Concepts

From The Friends of Billy Goat Hill Park:
Billy Goat Hill (BGH) was allocated $50,000 of the 2008 Clean & Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond to rebuild the lower park entrance and the trail leading to the big eucalyptus trees (and the swing) and the steps up to the top of the hill. The current trail is extremely steep and unusable by all but the most adventurous of us. These improvements should make a 'walk in the park' much easier and bring more kids and families out to see the wildflowers, native plants and butterflies and enjoy the great view. A public meeting is being held on Wednesday, July 14th at 6:30 in the Upper Noe Rec Center to present the plans for community input.
What: Billy Goat Hill Community Meeting
When: July 14, 6:30 – 8:00PM
Where: Upper Noe Rec Center Auditorium (@ Sanchez and Day)

Does the swing still exist? They kept taking it down years ago and we would put it back up. Then they cut down the whole branch. That was the best rope swing in the world. I that I remember a wimpy incarnation of it, which is maybe what you are talking about. Does the thing still exist?
