Join the Glen Park Association for our fall quarterly meeting Thursday, October 21, 7pm on Zoom (registration details below)
The San Francisco Fire Marshal will talk about fire safety, both in Glen Canyon and in the home.
From murals to greenways, featuring Bernal Glen’s own Sophie Constantinou, whose tireless work along the Bernal Cut was highlighted in the September 26 Native Son column:
Many San Franciscans of a certain vintage are convinced that the city has gone to hell. “It’s been ruined,” they will say. “It’s not the city I grew up in.” That’s true because nothing ever stays the same. But in some ways, San Francisco is better than ever.
This Sunday we offer a small example — a pretty little roadside trail that runs alongside the Bernal Cut, a stretch of San Jose Avenue that connects the Mission District and Noe Valley with the 280 freeway. The Bernal Cut is nearly a freeway in itself: It’s a four-lane road, nearly a mile long, with no traffic signals, and limited access. There are bike lanes, too, and the Muni’s J-Church streetcar line runs right down the middle. The whole street hums with traffic day and night.
And on both sides of the highway, perched on hillsides, are two concrete walking paths, lined with shrubs and trees. They offer a pleasant place to stroll right above a busy street, a bit of a walk on the mild side of San Francisco.
