In our Golden Gate National Parks, bridges are focal points and starting points. They soar above us, forcing us to stop and look, before connecting us to new adventures.

Our 2019 Report to the Community celebrates bridging: People to parks, past to future, and even father to daughter. Check out the full stunning presentation here, including stirring videos, fun interactive graphics, and the stories of people who have been instrumental to bridging in our parks.
