Open Ft. Funston During the #ShutDown


By sally - Posted on 05 January 2019

Please help us open Fort Funston during the gov't shutdown! Right now it's dangerous with people parking on the highway. The GGNRA has agreed to open the parking lot if we remove the trash and clean the porta potties.

SFDOG has asked the GGNRA to open the parking lot at Fort Funston during the partial government shutdown. People are continuing to access and use Fort Funston despite the closed lot and are instead parking alongside the highway. The limited, narrow shoulder parking is routinely packed with parked cars that stretch from the park entrance to as far as the eye can see. Many people unload their young children and pets from the highway side of their car, further congesting traffic as they then walk along the shoulder or in the highway lane on their way to the beach. The current situation isn't safe for people or their pets.

The GGNRA has agreed to open the lot if SFDOG maintains Fort Funston during the shutdown by removing trash from the trash bins on a daily basis and having the porta potties cleaned. This will cost $1,000 per week.

Will you please help us make this a reality? Let's keep ourselves and our dogs save, keep Fort Funston open to the public, and take care of a place we love. Click here to donate.
