Sunday Streets – Tenderloin
April 13, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
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 in the Tenderloin
Sunday Streets in the Tenderloin has been a huge success in the community. This densely populated neighborhood houses the highest number of families with children, has one of the highest rates of car-free households, and has the least amount of parkspace per capita in San Francisco. Few neighborhoods make a better case for transforming streets into recreational space for playing and building community.
The Tenderloin Sunday Streets route includes Fulton St between Hyde and Larkin, Larkin to Ellis St, Ellis to Jones St, Jones to Golden Gate Ave, and Golden Gate Ave to Larkin St.
Activities and more
Sunday Streets is excited to partner with the San Francisco Public Library to activate the area around Civic Center. In 2014, Stern Grove will be joining Sunday Street to bring live music to the streets of the Tenderloin. The activity deadline for the Tenderloin event is March 28, 2014, so keep an eye out for the complete activity list to be published shortly after!
