While walking the Golden Gate trail, one of the options is to take an extended walk, which includes walking past Crissy Field. It's history as an airplane landing strip is pretty cool...mainly used as a big dog park now!

The bridge in the backdrop and the am sun lights it perfectly! Take your time and watch the world wake up as it gets later in the am. A great place to walk, bike or run!

Walked through the park on a recent sunny weekend, and there were lots of people out enjoying the nice weather. The views of the bay, across to Sausalito, Alcatraz, and of course the Golden Gate Bridge were just fantastic. Nice place to run, walk, or just stroll along, enjoying the scenery (watch out for the bikers though, who often move... More

Great view of the Golden Gate. Perfect little stroll on a bike. Loved it! Took a bike to ride across the golden gate and went through Crissy to get there. I think this place has the best view rather than the actual bridge itself. Such a family little area and I can't wait to go back!

We lived in SF 45 years ago and if someone had told me then that this area of San Francisco would be eminently visitable many years later I would not have believed it. The marshes are pristine and the SF Bay water is clean and pure. Fun watching the dog walkers walk many dogs and to see wild life in... More

Beautiful beach walk and perfect view to the Golden Gate Bridge. One has the view from the GG bridge to Alcatraz and is in walking distance to the piers. We had a small adhoc picknich there, as there is also a supermarket right nearby.

Easy to hike to this field from the toll plaza. A fairly flat hike can take you all the way back toward the city. Restrooms at the field.

The views of the golden gate bridge, alcatraz and the bay are unparalleled. There is so much to do in this area: take pictures galore and stroll the beach along the bay, bring your running shoes, bikes or skate board and enjoy the path from fort point to fort mason. Try the climbing wall at planet granite or bounce all... More
