Picture of the Week – San Francisco, The Gardens of Alcatraz

Did you know that Alcatraz, located in the San Francisco Bay, has always had gardens and the families of the prison guards would look after the gardens?  However, after Alcatraz’s closure in 1963, the gardens fell into neglect. Today the gardens have been restored by volunteers and a few city workers.  These gardens are now home to numerous birds in the area.
