Rich Ladies' Campaign to Keep Cars in Golden Gate Park

The Conservatory and its backers haven't always been so concerned about accessibility for the disabled. The 1878 giant glass terrarium is a historical landmark, and backers used this status to request waivers under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The waivers allowed the 2003 renovation to proceed without providing the same level of access for the disabled that a new building would, said Bruce Wolfe, a San Francisco social worker whose clients include the disabled, who gets around with the help of a cane.

The rich ladies do not own the park. The park is for everyone.

More people enjoy the park on car-free day than any other day.

Great expose of how the wealthy rule San Francisco and why it needs to stop.
