Promenade Play Days
Promenade Play Days is a series of free installations and events appearing on the JFK Promenade in Golden Gate Park over the next several months, and is part of a larger effort by Rec and Park and SFMTA to ensure safe, equitable access to Golden Gate Park. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors in April voted to keep a portion of the park’s main drag, John. F. Kennedy Drive, as a car-free promenade.
San Francisco arts nonprofit Illuminate will create a “Golden Mile” along the Promenade, filling the collective space with art and performance
Local artists will create a diverse array of street murals along the JFK route
Iconic Doggie Diner heads will be installed along JFK Drive between Conservatory Drive West and 6th Avenue
Inspired by the SF Botanical Gardens' Flower Piano, these public pianos, located on JFK at Conservatory Drive West, and JFK between Stow Lake Drive and East 14th Avenue, will be there for everyone to play
Chairs for socializing and relaxing
Fun, Food and Fright
Additional activations and events along the Promenade
Rec and Park will enhance entrances to the Promenade (JFK at Kezar Drive and JFK at 8th Avenue) by installing vibrant colors on the pavement and adding tables, chairs and trees
This page will be updated often to reflect the growing list of activities along the Promenade this fall.
