Sometimes people knock on Marlene Williams’ door and ask to use the bathroom.
Williams lives in Balboa Park with her husband and daughter — they’re among a handful of people sanctioned to live in the city’s urban park. Williams thinks of the park — and its 65 acres of trails — as her big backyard. She loves it, even if she has to deal with park-goers’ bathroom requests every once in a while.
She joined five other speakers in our “Meeting of the Minds” event last week to tell us more about the trails and the work she’s done with the Girl Scouts and Friends of Balboa Park to make the park better.
