Pine Lake - official name? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

In Pine Lake Park there is a lake which is usually described as Pine Lake. However, current AAA maps refer to it as Laguna Puerca. (Puerca is Spanish for female pig.) A City map dated 1892 at the Library's History Center also shows Laguna Puerca, as does the 1915 USGS map.

Was it ever officially designated as Pine Lake? If so, from when to when?

{When I was growing up in that neighborhood we called it Mud Lake - obviously not official.)
