Launched in the spring of 2010, the Cole Valley Parents Network is a friendly
resource for families living in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francisco.
Our neighborhood has exploded with families in the last few years, and now we have an easy way to communicate, share information, and meet each other!

We currently have over 250 members, and we're still growing! To join, go to our
Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/colevalleyparents.
If you don't have a Google account, the best way to join is for us to invite your
email address: send a request to colevalleyparents@googlegroups.com.

After going strong for two years, our Sunday open playgroup at Grattan
Playground is on hiatus. But we are hoping to reinvigorate it—maybe you're
the member to make that happen! We also have one or two member-hosted
weekday playgroups, which are especially good for the little ones. Once
you join, check out the discussion board for updates on those playgroups.

When you join CVPN, you're joining a Google Group, where our members share info about everything from girl scout cookies and garage sales to nannies and strange neighborhood noises. You can ask about babysitting rates, get doctor recommendations, or organize an activity. And since we're all sure to see each other around the neighborhood, our members always stay friendly in their posts!

In addition to our playgroups, we've had a couple of family hikes and picnics,
as well as an occasional parents' night out. Once you join, you can keep an eye
out for posts about new activities, or you can organize one yourself!

A B O U T

The Cole Valley Parents Network was started by a mom and dad living in Cole
Valley who wanted to get to know some other local families. We lived in the
neighborhood for many years before moving to Los Angeles, where both of our sons were born. In LA we were very involved in a neighborhood parents' group, as well as our older son's preschool, and we met lots of other families. Once we got back to San Francisco, we wanted to create that same sense of community. So we decided to tap into our wonderful neighborhood and get something started!
