Walk SF Monthly Walk: SoMa – Mean Streets, Green Streets
From Walk SF:
Join Walk SF for one of our most popular monthly walks. The walk will be lead by Katy Liddell, a member of Southern Stations SFPD Community Advisory Board, a former Walk SF board member, and an active SoMa community member, and Barbara McMillin, a Southern Stations SFPD Community Advisory Board member and former Yerba Buena Community Benefit District board member.
Explore South-of-Market to discover the hidden parks, gardens, and open spaces of this industrial neighborhood. Experience the contrasts between SoMa’s dangerous high-speed streets and its greened alleys and public spaces that provide pedestrian refuges. Be part of a conversation to discuss opportunities to create more “Green Connections” to help people walk safely to green space. Listen as guest speakers share their stories about the history of South Park and the community-led creation of other small parks and gardens on this urban adventure.
If you’re hungry afterward, join walk leaders for an optional lunch at Extreme Pizza (across the street from the walk’s last destination on Folsom).
