Description

Crissy Field is a picturesque park, neighboring the Golden Gate Bridge, whose shoreline is a favorite for walkers, joggers, bicyclists, and thousands of birds. Just a brisk jog from the Palace of Fine Arts and the Presidio, Crissy Field is one of the most scenic parts of San Francisco. This is also the beginning of the Golden Gate Promenade, where you can take a languorous stroll along the coast leading to the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The Crissy Field Center provides a variety of services and programs for visitors: walks, workshops, and ecology labs are designed to entertain and educate the public about San Francisco's natural beauty. Grab some warm food at the Coffee Hut as you watch the fog roll in.
