Golden Gate Promenade


Golden Gate Promenade can be found along Marina Boulevard at Baker in the Marina District of San Francisco, California. It is a popular three and a half mile route for people to walk, jog, cycle and skate along with pleasant views of the bay. This flat pathway can be reached from Fort Pont, where there are plenty of parking spaces off Lincoln Avenue.

The promenade takes visitors through Crissy Field and the restored tidal marsh and beaches along the bay shore. Here there are great scenic views to be enjoyed as well as the native plants and sightings of the water birds. The grassy meadows lining the promenade provide a nice setting for visitors to fly their kites.

Amongst the major attractions of San Francisco to be seen from here are the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Marin Headlands. It is also possible to sit and enjoy the views from the Crissy Field Center from Thursday to Monday, where environmental programs and field trips are offered to school children and adults. Visitors can enjoy lunch at the picnic tables just past Fort Point or at the Crissy Field Center, where breakfast, lunch and snacks are sold as well as guidebooks and souvenirs.
