Walk with us April 28 to celebrate one year of a climate-friendly car-free JFK Drive
On April 28, it will be exactly a year that we’ve enjoyed a car-free JFK Drive every single day, 24 hours a day. Overnight, JFK Drive was transformed from a designated “high-injury” street to a destination for people to get out on foot, bicycles, wheelchairs, scooters, and rollerskates with space for social distancing. A place to connect with each other and nature.
Last March, so many of you joined Walk SF in asking for this space, and our voices were heard. I’m grateful to Mayor London Breed, SF Rec and Park Manager Phil Ginsburg, and SFMTA Director Jeffrey Tumlin for their leadership in creating this incredible space. It’s critically important for our health and safety, but also for a more climate-friendly future.
To celebrate car-free JFK’s anniversary and Earth Day, you’re invited to join me and other Walk SF staff for a distanced walk along car-free JFK Drive on Wednesday, April 28 at 12:30PM.
We’ll meet in front of the Conservatory of Flowers at 12:30PM, where I’ll share a brief update about our work as part of the Golden Gate Park Stakeholder Group and what’s next in our campaign to make car-free JFK Drive permanent.
Feel free to wear your Walk SF t-shirt and bring a celebratory sign or a sign sharing your thanks with city leaders.
NOTE: Face masks and six-foot distancing are required per San Francisco Department of Health guidelines.
