Past Present and Future Walking tour this Sunday!

Get your walking shoes on and join HVNA Board member Larry Cronander for a tour in Hayes Valley this Sunday!

Sun, February 12, 1pm – 4pm

Meet at Koshland Park – corner of Page and Buchanan Streets (map)


Join Walk San Francisco and our guide Larry Cronander for an exploration of the colorful past, dynamic present and promising future of Hayes Valley, one of the City’s most rapidly changing neighborhoods. A vibrant early Victorian neighborhood, Hayes Valley later went into decades of decline, particularly with the construction of the Central Freeway in the 1950s. With its demolition, the adoption of the Market-Octavia Plan and the construction of Octavia Boulevard, the neighborhood bloomed again, with renovations, new construction, and innovative interim uses of the spaces left by the freeway’s footprint. We’ll check out official San Francisco landmark buildings, the Hayes Valley Farm, and much more.

We’ll finish at a local pub on Hayes Street, where you can stay if you wish to enjoy the company of your fellow walkers!
