Spotlight on Community Partners:
SF Department of Recreation and ParksSF's
Dept. of Rec and Parks provides crucial support for every Sunday
Streets event through access to Rec and Park facilities and properties
along each Sunday Streets route. Our popular Great Highway/Golden Gate
Park route takes place entirely on Rec and Park property, as they manage
Ocean Beach and the recreational pathway along the Great Highway as
well as Golden Gate Park. Sunday Streets July 10 event features an
additional special feature: a FREE Circus performance by Circus Bella,
and Rec and Park staff play a key behind the scenes role to make this
performance possible. Thank you, Phil, Dana, Marcus, Diane and all the
hard working Rec and Park Staff!
