We hear from our members that Golden Gate Park needs to be designed for people first, not fast-moving vehicles. How can we make that happen?
Earlier this month our members arrived in full force at an open house hosted by the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and the SF Recreation and Park Department. As a part of the Golden Gate Park Traffic Safety Study, City staff asked the community to share their experiences to better understand how vehicle circulation impacts park-users. The goal of the study is to identify long-term measures to prioritize the experience of people biking and walking in Golden Gate Park.
With more than 13 million people who visit the park each year, this treasured open space is beloved by families all over the city and beyond. Parents 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. Most attendees arrived by biking, walking and taking public transit.
Couldn’t make it to the open house? You can still provide feedback to inform future plans for vehicle circulation in the park. Take this opportunity to let the City know how people walking and biking can be prioritized in Golden Gate Park. Share this survey with your friends and neighbors so that we can make the message clear: Golden Gate Park is for people.
