Golden Gate Park Music Concourse

The barriers around the concourse are starting to come down as the underground work is completed. The new de Young Museum is complete and magnificent. The band shell, fountains, statues and trees on the concourse have been protected from the construction and look as good as ever. Sadly the pedestrian tunnels under the roadway are missing to make way for subterranean parking. Some of the steps have been replaced with new steps in the same style but include wheelchair ramps.

The next big step in the construction will be the new California Academy of Sciences, and Steinhart Aquarium. It is my hope that the concourse will be open during construction.
