The Parks Conservancy’s signature project, Crissy Field was transformed starting in 2001 from a former military airfield into a beloved national park site through the generosity of the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund and Colleen and Robert Haas, as well as thousands of community volunteers and donors.
Today, the restored Crissy Field is a stunning place to walk or bike on a flat, hard-packed promenade with iconic views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. A beautiful and much-loved trail winds through Crissy Field between Marina Green and Fort Point.
You’ll find beaches, picnic tables, tidal marsh overlooks, and renowned windsurfing. At the east end, Crissy Field Center serves as a multicultural urban environmental education center for youth.
At the west end of Crissy Field, the Warming Hut offers delicious snacks, sandwiches, and drinks—as well as a wide selection of park gear and eco-friendly merchandise.
Crissy Field Center is a dynamic hub of youth engagement for the Golden Gate National Parks and a model program of the National Park Service.
