Rec and Park’s New Sign in the Panhandle Directs Tourist Pedestrians AWAY from the Multi-Use Path Abutting Fell

Let’s pay off on that headline right now.

Looking east from Stanyan:

Oh here we go: Bikes to the left, peds to the right, see?

Now I say tourists ’cause locals already know that they can tread upon “the bike path” in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.

The real solution would be to widen this path what functions as a sidewalk for the south side of Fell, but for some reason, our RPD SFMTA SFCTA DPW alphabet soup don’t want to do that.

(And their next step will be to add painted crosswalk-type lines on the multi-use path where it intersects with what would be the sidewalks of Shrader, Cole, Clayton, Ashbury, Central, and Lyon if it weren’t for the existence of Golden Gate Park, the better to avoid any more bike v. ped accidents.)

Anyway, for better or worse…

    Are they taking reservations for one’s chosen route? Will there be a tiered payment system, e.g., carry a walking stick–$3 surcharge; reserve at the last minute–$4; tired and need an Uber to come onto the path and pick you up–special license, $8 fee plus surcharges apply; arrow challenged and need more explicit directions?–operators are standing by or go to StraightArrowsforParks@sfgov.org
