Celebrating Open Streets and the Future of Golden Gate Park

Do you know what it’s like to enjoy five-and-a-half miles of uninhibited, continuous and car-free streets? Come experience it for yourself on June 11.

Get ready to celebrate open streets in June at this year’s Sunday Streets in the Outer Sunset features a car-free JFK Drive all the way to the ocean and along the southern half of the Great Highway. You’ll also have a special opportunity to share your biking and walking experiences directly with with City planners in Golden Gate Park. Will we see you there?

I’ll Be There

As a part of the Golden Gate Park Traffic Safety Study, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) partnered with the Recreation and Parks Department to learn more about people’s hopes and dreams for improving the park at a public open house last year. Parents in attendance who walk and bike with their children expressed that they would feel more comfortable taking their families to the park if it were car-free, while other attendees discussed specific problem spots for people biking in the park.

The message has been consistently clear from our members: we want slower traffic and fewer people driving through the park. Now the City is ready to present its recommendations to prioritize the experience of people biking and walking in Golden Gate Park.

Sunday Streets celebrates neighborhoods by opening up miles of streets in San Francisco to people walking and biking. June’s scenic Sunday Streets travels along JFK Drive and onto the Great Highway, highlighting treasured open space and expansive ocean views. We hope to see you there.
