Sutro-era sculpture at the new Lands End Lookout.

The Lands End Lookout, which opened
April 28, 2012, is a major milestone achievement in the ongoing revitalization of Lands End, catalyzed by the generosity of the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund.

Construction of this 4,150-square-foot visitor center began in May 2011. The building includes informational exhibits describing the area’s rich cultural and natural history, park-related retail, a café, and restrooms. Visitors will be able to enjoy an interpretive experience that will complement the restoration work already completed.

Renovations to the California Coastal Trail at Lands End took place in several key phases. Volunteer-driven natural and cultural resource stewardship will continue, including ongoing habitat restoration carried out by the Park Stewardship program.

Key Contributors

This project was made possible by generous support from the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund and the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation. The Goldman Fund and Goldsmith Foundation were lead supporters of the recently completed work along the trails, scenic overlooks, improvements to the forest health, and natural resource restoration work. Our deep gratitude goes to these lead funders and the members of the Parks Conservancy for their support of work at Lands End.
