    An audience member at Comedy Day holds up a "Miss you Robin!" sign at Sharon Meadow, which has now been renamed Robin Williams Meadow.

    Robin Williams Meadow is now a reality.

    The Sharon Meadow portion of Golden Gate Park was renamed Sunday in honor of the legendary and beloved Bay Area comedian. The tribute was announced at San Francisco's 37th annual Comedy Day.

    Supporters said Williams, who died in 2014, often sponsored the event to help support young comics. Other times, he headlined the show or performed as a guest.

    The idea to rename Sharon Meadow came to Will and Debi Durst soon after their friend's death. As organizers of Comedy Day, they raised $100,000 for new signs and updated brochures, according to the Mercury News
