San Francisco Golden Gate Park Mayor Gavin Newsom today announced the return of Sunday Streets on Great Highway on Sunday, August 22nd. Reprising the popular Penguins to Penguins theme with a 4.5-mile route that runs the nearly the entire length of JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park, Sunday Streets on Great Highway connects the existing Sunday car-free area to MLK Drive to Ocean Beach along the Great Highway from Lincoln to Sloat Boulevards.

“Since 2008, San Francisco has produced 14 successful Sunday Streets events to activate our neighborhoods and communities in a unique and fun way to promote healthy active lifestyles. San Francisco has produced more car-free events than any other major city,” said Mayor Newsom. “These events are collaborations between City agencies, non-profit partners, sponsors, and community leaders to showcase each neighborhood’s Sunday Streets route, and this weekend’s event highlights many of the unique features and institutions on the Westside of our City including our world class Golden Gate Park and zoo.” Read more.
