In 1929, John McLaren, the grandfather of Golden Gate Park and San Francisco’s first park superintendent, began a holiday tradition of lighting trees along a mile-long stretch of Fell Street that ended in front of McLaren Lodge, his home at the time.

McLaren Lodge is located at 501 Stanyan Street (and Fell), in Golden Gate Park and is accessible by MUNI via the 5 Fulton, 21 Hayes, 33 Stanyan, 71 Noriega and N Judah lines.

They will have free bike valet parking at McLaren Lodge, which will be provided by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, as well as accessible parking both at the Lodge and at Nancy Pelosi and JFK drives.
