Comments Invited on an Aquatic Park Promenade Rehabilitation Project and a Proposed Entrance Fee Increase
San Francisco, CA — San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park welcomes the community to an open house on Tuesday, October 28 from 4-7pm in the General’s Residence, Fort Mason (entrance at the intersection of Bay and Franklin Streets). Presented in coordination with Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the open house will include stations for public comment on SF Maritime NHP’s Aquatic Park Promenade rehabilitation project and a proposed entrance fee increase. There is no set program – visitors can arrive at any time to discuss plans/projects with Park staff and provide feedback.
At two previous meetings, the park collected public comments about the Aquatic Park Promenade project, and the alternatives presented reflect both the input received and the Park’s desire to craft a long-term solution that supports both preservation of the National Historic Landmark District and safe public use of the Promenade. The Promenade’s pavement was built over urban fill and, over time, has become uneven and hazardous to users. The Promenade surface has been patched, but until the pathway’s underlying structural elements are addressed, the problems will continue.
The park is also asking for input on a proposed entrance fee increase. The Park’s current entrance fee ($5) and annual pass fee ($20) have not increased since the year 2000. The proposed new entrance fee ($10) and annual pass fee ($40) would help the park preserve its cultural resources, improve public facilities, and provide more educational (and fun) opportunities for visitors.
