San Francisco’s second largest park is overdue for safety improvements. Join the campaign for better routes to bike there.
McLaren Park is enjoyed by local residents and has long been a popular place to experience mountain biking in our city. Your SF Bicycle Coalition is excited to share details of the Mansell Corridor Improvements currently under construction by the SF Recreation & Parks Department, which are bringing a fully protected, multi-use path to the heart of MacLaren Park.
When completed in early Fall of this year, these safety improvements will make McLaren Park and its open green spaces even more accessible to residents of the Excelsior, Visitación Valley and the Portola. The changes will also facilitate access to the McLaren Bike Park, in the works to become San Francisco’s first bicycle skills park.
With Mansell undergoing such a significant transformation, we are advocating for safety improvements for people biking on corridors leading to McLaren Park and the adjacent Crocker-Amazon playground, soccer fields and urban farm, (the latter a victory by our neighborhood ally PODER).
We are starting by making Geneva Avenue safer for our members and other people biking and walking on this important corridor. Our goal is to bring protected and continuous bike lanes to Geneva east of Mission Street through the SF Municipal Transportation Agency’s Geneva Multimodal Improvement Project. The first community meeting for this project is expected by May 2016.
