|Don't let all the green fool you. Golden Gate was built for cars, not stupid pedestrians & bikers.|
#1 - Pedestrians Don't Matter!
|Secret pedestrian crossings are everywhere in GG Park. They may be in the form of faded paint, obstructed signs, or simply unmarked crossings with none in sight!|
|Other pedestrian crossing areas are nestled in between lush obstructed landscapes around cars going at least 25 miles per hour. What better way to say "why aren't you in a car like a normal person?"|
|Don't let Google fool you dear motorist, I highlighted the areas where there are bike lanes. Google foolishly assumes you can bike on some of the trails but you'll see the park signeage says otherwise.|
|Don't worry about bike lanes. They are either wedged between parked cars or near speeding traffic! Yay Cars!|
|Golden Gate Park knows that, for some stupid reason, some people actually want to bike in a park. Fear not! They know enough to ban bikers, but not build bike lanes.|
|A few idiot bikers trying to get through glorious cross park motor traffic.|
|Every now and then you'll see a faded bike sharrow between a speeding & parked car.|
|There are so many places to park your car! You may find a little gem of a parking lot here and there, but rest assured if there's a side of something, you're allowed to park there, even if it's in the middle of two crosswalks!|
|The best part is unlike most urban parks, you don't have to pay a thing to park! You're apparently limited to 4 hours of parking in the same location, but do you think anyone checks? Doubtful!|
Underneath the Science Academy lies a testament to parking. There you can drive all around to your heart's content and look for just the right spot. Keep in mind, though, you would actually have to pay for parking down there, and then use your legs like a sucker to get to other parts of the park. You might want to just drive thru this glorious parking jewel and take some pictures of the hundreds of unused spaces like I did.
|There is a huge underground parking structure below the Science Acadamy but don't worry you'll never have to park down there. Since parking is ~everywhere~ in Golden Gate Park and it's free, why bother?|
