Regarding a proposed compromise, when has any legally protected group ever given up their civil and legal rights in the name of compromise?
For the second year in a row, banning cars from (the eastern part of) JFK Drive made it impossible for many people with mobility disabilities, seniors, those who live far from Golden Gate Park and others to see the Winter Lights shows.
To provide adaptive bicycles for free to people with disabilities, the Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program (BORP) has teamed up with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), Lyft Bay Wheels and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC).
Is JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park accessible to all or just to able bodied and financially able?
After the SF Recreation and Park Department closed John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park to vehicular traffic 24/7 to allow space for pedestrians and cyclists to get some exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic, it created a wall between the Richmond District and the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park.
As we plan for reopening in the future, we will continue to closely follow local and state public health guidelines to inform our approach. We look forward to welcoming visitors back through our doors again and our top priority is to ensure we provide the safest experience possible.
