Turn Out to Keep Golden Gate Park Car-Free Forever

Last Wednesday, September 22, the City launched their outreach efforts for the future of Golden Gate Park. Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition strongly supports the car-free options based on the overwhelming success of car-free JFK Drive over the past 17 months. If you haven’t already, there’s still plenty of time to take a look at the survey and weigh in.

The Board of Supervisors will be taking action on whether or not JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park will remain permanently car-free this winter. There is no place in the Bay Area that’s like JFK Drive today. This is a truly special place and we need to do everything we can to make sure more and more people have access to this oasis of fun and play in our city’s largest park space. The last 17 months have proved the point we’ve been making for years: Parks should be for people first, not cars.

Along with the survey, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is hosting virtual open houses where City planners will walk through the proposals, answer questions, and take your feedback. We encourage you to join one of these open houses to learn more and support maintaining the car-free space we’ve been celebrating.

Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has pushed City planners to make sure their outreach isn’t only online. Along with their virtual open houses, the City is hosting walking tours, bike rides, and in-person outreach to make sure they hear from a broad audience of people. If you care about the future of Golden Gate Park, now is the time to jump in and get involved.
