Black Point Historic Gardens is the San Francisco Bay Area’s newest national park site, a one-acre hillside that connects San Francisco’s Aquatic Park to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) at Fort Mason.
Since the 1850s, walkways, stairs, and gardens have led from bluff-top residences to the waterfront. August 2021 marks the first time this area will be open to the general public. This public, open space is an example of the lasting impact of the dedication of the Parks Conservancy, the National Park Service, donors, volunteers and valued community partners.
