POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER: This event was rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 4.
The path dedicated to people walking and biking is dramatically improving access to San Francisco’s second-largest park.
Until recently, Mansell Street’s four lanes of fast-moving vehicle traffic divided McLaren Park. To open up access throughout the park and reduce vehicle speeds, SF Recreation and Parks re-dedicated two lanes of Mansell Street to a novel use: people.
The new path for people biking and walking Mansell Street is nearly complete and physically separated from the remaining two lanes of vehicle traffic. The spacious path includes a two-way bike lane, a rubbery running path and ample space for people of all ages to enjoy walking.
Want to ride or stroll it yourself? Join us for the official opening of the Mansell Street people path.
Mansell People Path’s Official Opening
Saturday, Feb. 4, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Mansell Street and Visitacion Avenue
We’ll be there with fellow members, other community groups and City leaders to celebrate a new way for families in the Excelsior, Visitacion Valley and other neighboring communities to access and enjoy McLaren Park.
This project would not be possible without years of dedication from park advocates as well as the leadership of former Supervisor John Avalos. We also thank SF Recreation and Parks for their hard work leading a citywide effort to realize advocates’ vision.
