Sunday Streets was first piloted with two events in the fall of 2008 on The Embarcadero. It has become an annual tradition that the first Sunday Streets event of the year happens on The Embarcadero. That typically means providing the northbound lane of The Embarcadero, normally used by cars and bicycles, for residents and visitors to use for walking, running, bicycling, or otherwise playing as if it were additional open space.
The Supervisorial District 6 that includes the South of Market neighborhoods has the least amount of open space per 1,000 residents in San Francisco at a level of 0.17 acres per 1,000 residents, according to a June 6, 2013 report presented to the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee from Harvey Rose & Associates.
Sunday Streets runs on donations and volunteers. Please consider volunteering for this and future Sunday Streets events!
