The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is America's most visited national park. It includes more than 84,000 acres of some of the most valuable real estate in the world and it belongs to every single one of us. And it didn't become a reality by accident. Learn about the dedicated, civic-minded people who made this Uncommon Common Good a reality we can all treasure.
Officials on Thursday held a "groundmaking" ceremony for a park that will eventually connect the Presidio of San Francisco with Crissy Field.
Dramatic views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco Bay, the Presidio, and the San Francisco skyline are coming to Golden Gate National Recreation Area with the addition of 14 acres of new parkland atop highway tunnels.
The maxim “good things come to those who wait” is being put to the test in the Presidio — where work formally begins Thursday on a 14-acre, sloping park intended to connect the atmospheric Main Post with ever-popular Crissy Field.
If you’ve ever visited San Francisco and strolled the Presidio—a former military base turned national recreational area—you’ve experienced the magic of this outdoor oasis.
