Annual Winter Wonderland 2023 in Partnership with Boston Properties

On Thursday, December 21st, SFPAL, in partnership with Boston Properties, hosted its annual Winter Wonderland Event at the Yerba Buena Ice Skating Center. More than 200 students from Gordon Lau Elementary School, Longfellow Elementary School, Visitacion Valley Middle School, and Washington High School attended the 2023 Winter Wonderland. The ice rink-style layout provided ample space for many first-timers to test their skills and confidence. During the event, we witnessed friendly competitions between classmates, lots of wipeouts, and lots of fun. All attendees received an SFPAL Winter Wonderland T-shirt. The event was catered with delicious tacos, quesadillas, and a nachos buffet. Boudin Bakery provided coffee and beautifully decorated gingerbread cookies. Santa Claus, also known as retired Sergeant Todd Burke, made an appearance to spread the holiday spirit. We want to extend our gratitude to all of the uniformed supervisors and officers who helped out at this year’s event, including Commander Pera, SFPAL President Lieutenant Matt Sullivan, retired Sergeant Kruger, Officer Costello, Officer Sweeney, Officer William Ma, and Officer Mondragon. We also appreciate the SFPD Alert volunteers and the official photographer, Milo Medrano.
