San Francisco, CA – San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park announces a public meeting to gather comments about rehabilitation plans for the Aquatic Park Promenade (the wide walkway along Aquatic Park Cove, from Jefferson Street to Van Ness Avenue). Several alternatives have been developed for review. The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 20, from 4-7 pm, in the Maritime Museum. Park staff will answer questions and take comments at information stations in the museum lobby, and provide an historical context for this significant WPA-era structure with historic photos and drawings from the museum collections.

The Promenade once connected San Francisco waterfront’s State Belt Railroad to Fort Mason and the Presidio. The track bed and sidewalk were built over sand, and natural subsidence has caused cracking and lost pavement. The Promenade surface has been patched and filled many times, but until the pathway’s underlying structural elements are addressed, the problems will continue. The park is seeking a long-term solution that supports both preservation of the Aquatic Park National Historic Landmark District and safe public use of the Promenade.

For more information about the meeting, please call (415) 561-7006. You can learn more by writing to: Promenade Project, San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, Building E, Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CA 94123, or by e-mailing SAFR_Planning@nps.gov. The park has also opened a page on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment site (PEPC) where you can learn more about the project, and leave comments online http://parkplanning.nps.gov/promenadepavement.
