Street parks begin popping up around San Francisco

The littered areas next to some San Francisco freeway on and off-ramps are being converted into mini parks.

One of the just completed parks is next to the ramp at 6th and Brannan streets. Now there are walking paths, trees and landscaping. The city is calling it a "street park."

The work is mostly being done by young people participating in the city's Jobs Now program.

Also slated for clean up are the ramps at 8th and Harrison, Cesar Chavez and 280, and Mission and Duboce.
