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!
