Park Projects

Park Projects

Yes, the national parks are pretty great. But they could always be better! That's why our award-winning Projects team continues to improve on the parklands and visitor experiences. Through new and enhanced trails, restored natural and cultural landscapes, and sustainably built facilities and amenities, we're working to make the Golden Gate National Parks more vibrant, more resilient, and more welcoming for all. None of this would be possible without the support of our members and park community, so thank you for helping us put the extra shine on these gems! 

All Projects

We care passionately for the Golden Gate National Parks. That's why we care deeply about the quality, durability, and sustainability of our work. Every project in these 80,000-acre parklands is thoughtfully planned and completed with the utmost commitment to the health of the environment and the enjoyment and safety of visitors.

Redwood Creek at Muir Beach
Our Work
