Why Do Users of the Panhandle Bike Path get Sprayed with Water at Night?

It’s not raining, but this section of the bike and pedestrian path in the Golden Gate Park Pandhandle is wet nevertheless, owing to nighttime watering.

Just try to keep you, your dog and/or your bike dry when the sprinklers are sprinkling. That’s unpossible. It’s like you’re the pilot of a bomber in Operation Tidal Wave getting flak from all sides.

You might think that steps would have been taken after all these years to somehow get the wet stuff on the green stuff without turning the bike path into a slobstical course.

    I actually heard that this was FINALLY fixed when Jared Bloomenfeld was appointed temporary head of SFRP. I haven’t noticed them on lately. Can anyone confirm?

    I’d sent an email to Ross Mirkarimi’s office about this a while back. They said it was on their list of issues to talk to Rec and Park about… Maybe worth checking with them again.

    I’d say 75% of the time I’ve biked through the panhandle I get watered at one way or another.

    I’ve noticed more of a problem west of Masonic historically, but there were numerous sprinklers spraying the path east of Masonic on Christmas night anyway.
