Press Coverage

San Francisco Bay Guardian

A chance to celebrate the Crissy Field Center's work to bring our kids closer to nature at the reopening of the Center's interim facilities at Crissy Field East Beach.

The Crissy Field Center's new interim facility at Crissy Field East Beach harmonizes user experience with its eco-features. Over more than 7,200 square feet, the building includes a science lab, a media lab, a youth leadership room, a sustainable arts room, and the Beach Hut snack bar much in the spirit of the beloved Warming Hut Cafe and Bookstore.

San Francisco Chronicle

The new interim Crissy Field Center facility at the eastern edge of Crissy Field traveled from conception to near-completion in just nine months. The project was put on the fast track after the starting date for one of the Bay Area's largest and most anticipated public works projects, the reconstruction of the Doyle Drive/Presidio Parkway approach to the Golden Gate Bridge, was moved forward to the summer of 2009 from its original start date in 2011.
