The Beach Chalet Fields today.

A project is proposed that will change forever the western edge of Golden Gate Park.   It is the Beach Chalet artificial turf/60 foot stadium lights soccer complex.  Act now to protect Golden Gate Park from development!

STOP THE DESTRUCTION OF PARKLAND AND HABITAT AT BEACH CHALET FIELDS IN THE WESTERN END OF GOLDEN GATE PARK.

 

SAY NO TO:

  • The 7 + acres of artificial turf proposed to replace a real grass playing field, an area larger than Candlestick Park!
  • The 10 banks of 60 foot tall stadium lights that will be lighted to 10:00 p.m. every night of the year,
  • 150,000 watts of light that will shine next to Ocean Beach
  • A $13.2 Million project that could be done for much less money,
  • Loss of wildlife habitat in an area designated as the most wild and wooded in the Golden Gate Park Master Plan.

Proposed -- urbanized parkland, lost habitat.

JOIN US TO SUPPORT THE WIN-WIN SOLUTION:

  • Renovate the Beach Chalet playing fields in  Golden Gate Park with real grass AND no night sports lighting
  • Use the rest of the money to fix up other parks and playing fields in San Francisco.

KIDS DESERVE REAL GRASS TO PLAY ON, and EVERYONE DESERVES A REAL PARK EXPERIENCE IN GOLDEN GATE PARK.
