About Sunday Streets Bayview/Dogpatch
This will be our 5th year Sunday Streets visits the Bayview and Dogpatch neighborhoods. With over three and a half miles of car-free space, this is one of the longest Sunday Streets routes and a great opportunity to explore San Francisco neighborhoods by bike. In 2014, we’re pleased to partner with the Stern Grove Festival Association for a special live music event anchoring the northern end of the Sunday Streets route at China Basin. Sunday Streets in the Bayview and Dogpatch connects AT&T Park, the Dogpatch, and Bayview via Terry Francois Blvd, Mariposa St, Indiana St, and Third St. For the first time, Sunday Streets will take place on the southbound lanes of Third St between 22nd St and Quesada Ave. Read below for suggested detours. Because this route is so long, we encourage you to bring your bike or skates. If you don’t have wheels, be sure to put on those walking shoes!
Activities and more
There are many amazing organizations and small businesses on and near this route (You can see the full activity list here).
