Crissy Field


The Parks Conservancy’s signature project, Crissy Field was transformed starting in 2001 from a former military airfield into a vibrant environmental showcase 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 wide, fully accessible trail winds through Crissy Field between Marina Green and Fort Point.

You’ll find beaches, picnic tables, tidal marsh overlooks, and renowned windsurfing. Enjoy tasty treats at the Beach Hut Café, located on the east end next to the Crissy Field Center, a multicultural urban environmental education center for youth. At the west end of Crissy Field, the Warming Hut also offers delicious snacks, sandwiches, and drinks—as well as a wide selection of park gear and eco-friendly merchandise.




The Presidio can be reached from the north by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge (Highways 1 and 101); from the east by way of Lombard Street (Highway 101); and from the south via Highway 1.
