For neighbors and families in the Outer Sunset, we cherish our beautiful open spaces. Bordered by Ocean Beach to the west, Golden Gate Park to the north and Stern Grove to the south, parks are part of the Outer Sunset’s neighborhood character. That’s why we need safe and comfortable bike routes to get around and enjoy our famous parks.
As 20th Avenue is a key bike route to the parks, fast-moving, spillover traffic from 19th Avenue means this north-south route isn’t as safe as it could be for those who walk or bike here. As the only designated bike route through the Outer Sunset to connect Golden Gate Park to Stern Grove, we’re working with members and local residents to improve 20th Avenue for everyone traveling here.
That’s why the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) heard loud and clear from neighbors during outreach efforts last summer: We need to slow cars down and divert traffic on 20th Avenue to prioritize those who walk or bike.
Now you have another chance to show up and help make 20th Avenue a safe route for everyone in the Sunset. The SFMTA is kicking off a second round of outreach next week, and we need your help to create a calm bike route for families and neighbors who love to explore SF’s parks.
With the addition of traffic diversions and improved entrances to parks, 20th Avenue could be the perfect low-stress park-to-park connection for the Sunset. Join us at an open house on April 12 to prioritize safe connections from Golden Gate Park to Stern Grove.
