Crissy Field 20th Anniversary

Share

On May 6, 2001, the National Park Service and Parks Conservancy unveiled the revitalized Crissy Field, reshaping San Francisco’s northern waterfront. A former concrete US Army airfield and parking lot, Crissy Field now serves as a treasured national park site. Our thanks to thousands of community volunteers, donors, and the vision and generosity of the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund for the restoration of our beloved place by the Bay.
