Green Connections Carnaval: Connecting pedestrians, bicyclists, and critters to the City’s green spaces

Join the Planning Department and Our Partners at the Kick-Off Event to Help Improve the Paths to the City’s Parks!

Green Connections will increase pedestrian and bicycle access to parks, open space and the waterfront, by re-envisioning City streets and paths as ‘green connectors’ that can be built over time. In the first year of the project, the focus will be to map a citywide network. The second year will build on this framework to design green connections in the following six neighborhoods: Bayview-Hunters Point, Chinatown, Potrero Hill, Tenderloin, Visitacion Valley and Western Addition.
