Bicycle Parking at the Main Entrance of the San Francisco Botanical Gardens to Move to the Back of the Bus, Way Off to the Side

I’ll tell you, I haven’t toured Strybing Arboretum since they threw up the paywall a few years back, kind of a boycott thing.

But I remember the bicycle parking area right out front of the Main Entrance near 9th and Lincoln, you know, right where it belonged.

Well, things are changing.

In another “improvement” from the RPD, the bike parking area is a moving all the way over, as seen in the top right of this image:

Here you go, a big-ass pdf:

    35′ chainlink fence!?

    Also, I wish they’d install bike racks not on concrete but on dirt/grass. I don’t see the benefit of pouring a bunch of concrete, it’s ugly, presumably more expensive, and serves no purpose.

    I’m seeing “move bike racks” or similar in the pdf twice.

    Now they are out front. This plan has them moving north, right?

    Ah, I see– I was looking at the north gate (which is the image you’re showing). That’s the street view I linked to.

    Yeah, moving the front gate racks seems pointless, and involves pouring extra concrete for no good reason.
