Rally to save car-free JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park
February 12, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Help show city leaders that so many people love car-free JFK Drive!
Come out in support of safe, healthy, climate-friendly space for everyone in our city’s biggest park.
The Board of Supervisors will vote on the future of car-free JFK Drive this spring, and its fate is anything but certain.
On Saturday, February 12, 2022 from 10:00AM-11:15AM, we’ll meet on car-free JFK Drive near the Conservatory of Flowers to show the huge amount of support for making this space permanent.
The rally will be a lot of fun, with dragon dancers, roller skating performances, arts and crafts and more!
Wear red to show your ❤ for car-free JFK and celebrate Lunar New Year!
