The Pink Triangle Park memorializes the lost lives of persecuted LGBTQ+ individuals. Located just above the Castro MUNI station, the picturesque triangle-shaped park is adorned with a small garden and 15 granite triangular structures built around a larger quartz triangle. Each structure represents 1000 lost lives, and together form an arrow pointing to the Harvey Milk Plaza, memorializing Harvey Milk who was the first openly gay person elected into public office.
