The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) is a destination for both locals and international visitors with its sweeping vistas, immense biological diversity, and unique cultural resources. With over 17 million visitors annually and over 80,000 acres of land, the GGNRA is the largest urban national park in the country. The mission of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area’s Facilities Management Division is to maintain the park’s buildings and landscaped areas for the use and enjoyment of park staff and visitors. Facilities management involves many different activities carried out by staff and volunteers including maintaining roads and trails, planting native plants, vegetation management, maintaining an extensive irrigation system, and preserving native and historic landscapes. The Maintenance Division Volunteers-In-Parks Program engages the community in order to develop a sense of ownership and civic pride in our parks and foster protection of our cultural and natural resources.
