With over a thousand acres of green open space, bike trails and city landmarks, Golden Gate Park is a San Francisco treasure.
Despite welcoming some 24 million visitors every year, it is both shocking and disappointing that Golden Gate Park is bounded by two streets with some of the fastest-moving traffic in the city. The last thing anyone should experience when crossing the street to take in the joy and beauty of Golden Gate Park, is feeling unsafe or uncomfortable.
Luckily, that’s all about to change for one of the park’s bordering streets, Fulton Street, with your help.
After receiving over one thousand responses to a survey and completing outreach, City planners are ready to reveal proposals to fix Fulton Street. If you walk, bike or take transit, turn out this Saturday to make sure major changes are won for those visiting Golden Gate Park and our Richmond District neighbors.
Fulton Street Open House
Saturday, Feb. 29 from 10:30 am-12:00 pm
Argonne Elementary School, 680 18th Ave.
Last year, Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer directed City planners to study safety improvements for Fulton Street, given the corridor’s history of collisions and fast-moving traffic. We are concerned that the bicycle and pedestrian improvements are not enough to fully address all safety concerns, especially for families and seniors who are crossing Fulton to visit Golden Gate Park.
That’s why your presence is needed more than ever: we can’t let another project in the Richmond be watered down. Will we see you there?
