It's Big Event Season in Golden Gate Park, starting with Outside Lands next weekend (August 9-11). PAR has been working closely with event organizers Another Planet Entertainment, the SF Police Department, SF Municipal Transportation Agency, Recreation & Parks Dept, Dept of Pubic Works, and Supervisor Eric Mar to prepare for this big event and address community concerns like parking and traffic and noise.
Again this year, Another Planet will have a Community Hotline to respond to any issues that may arise during the festival. The festival hotline will be available from 10:00am – 11:00PM on the festival days. The hotline number is 415-750-3842.
To help alleviate vehicle congestion in our neighborhood, festival promoters are strongly encouraging patrons to take alternative means of transportation to the festival, including MUNI, private shuttles, biking or walking. There will be 2 dedicated tow trucks and 1 Parking Control Officer on each side of the Park to quickly respond to any blocked driveways or any other parking issues related to the Festival. Rec & Park has printed signs alerting attendees to not block driveways, which may be obtained at the front desk of McLaren Lodge at 501 Stanyan St. If you need to have a vehicle towed please call the MTA directly at 415-553-1237.
And mark your calendar for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, coming up on Oct 4-6.
