A major visitor safety project to remove the railroad tracks from the Promenade between Jefferson Street and Van Ness Avenue, and then re-pave the area, will begin on Monday, October 24, 2016. The project will continue through early 2017.
The Promenade will be completely closed during the construction period. Other areas of the park will remain open, and the beach will be accessible from Jefferson Street.
The railroad tracks, though an historic feature of the Aquatic Park National Landmark District, were identified as contributing to an unsafe environment for the 4.2 million visitors who enjoy the park and its urban beach.
