The east side of Twin Peaks is now open only to people walking and biking thanks to our big campaign win in April 2015 to convert this one-way street to a welcoming promenade. Now the City wants to hear from you about how to redesign the space to make it inviting for all visitors. Sign up for updates and lend your ideas to the new face of Twin Peaks.
The weather was just right on Sunday morning for a walk in the hills to take in the magnificent views of the bay and the ocean from Twin Peaks Promenade. Our friends at Walk SF, the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and SF Urban Riders led a group of fifteen people for a 3.5 mi hike from Forest Hill to Cole Valley.
Starting at Forest Hill Station, they followed Laguna Honda trail to Twin Peaks and took the Ridge Trail down ending at Stanyan and Carl. A special thanks to Melinda Stockmann from SF Recreation and Parks Department for joining the event and providing history and context.
The opening of Twin Peaks Promenade is only the first step in establishing a welcoming open space where people can enjoy the sweeping views of the city safely. The new design may include benches, water fountains, lighting and additional landscaping. Sign up for updates and learn how to get involved in designing this car-free space for people.
