Sunday Streets – Bayview/Dogpatch
May 4, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm| Free
Sunday Streets are events that encourage recreation, community activities and fun in San Francisco. Sunday Streets closes stretches of city streets to automobile traffic, and opens them to people for several hours on a various Sundays throughout the year, so participants can enjoy a large, temporary, public space where they can bike, walk, run, dance, do yoga, or do any other physical activity. Non-profit and health organizations offer free activities and share information about their services during the event.
About Sunday Streets Bayview/Dogpatch
This will be our 5th year Sunday Streets visits the Bayview and Dogpatch neighborhoods. With over three and a half miles of car-free space, this is one of the longest Sunday Streets routes and a great opportunity to explore San Francisco neighborhoods by bike. In 2014, we’re pleased to partner with the Stern Grove Festival Association for a special live music event anchoring the northern end of the Sunday Streets route at China Basin. Sunday Streets in the Bayview and Dogpatch connects AT&T Park, the Dogpatch, and Bayview via Terry Francois Blvd, Mariposa St, Indiana St, and Third St. For the first time, Sunday Streets will take place on the southbound lanes of Third St between 22nd St and Quesada Ave. Read below for suggested detours. Because this route is so long, we encourage you to bring your bike or skates. If you don’t have wheels, be sure to put on those walking shoes!
Activities and more
There are many amazing organizations and small businesses near this route! This year, you can kick off your day at Sunday Streets by stopping to dance to some live music at China Basin. That’s right, Grove on the Road will be out with some fantastic performers for you to enjoy. Make your way down to the Bayview end of the route where you will find walking tours, live music, delicious restaurants, as well as dance or yoga lessons! We will have a full list of activities after April 18th, which is the activity deadline.
