The program mission of Arts in the Parks is provide programs to connect our visitors with creative experiences in the park that are transformative, unexpected, and inspirational.

Since the earliest days of the National Park Service, artists have drawn inspiration from these parks. Through Art in the Parks, visitors can experience a wide range of site specific experiences that reflect and respond to the beautiful setting and unique history of the Golden Gate National Parks. Art in the Parks has been highlighted as an element of the National Park Service Director’s Call to Action, a strategic vision for the agency that encourages national parks to illuminate the meaning of parks to new audiences through dance, music, visual arts, writing, and social media. Check out our current and past programs as well as opportunities to get involved.
