GGNRA turns 50

On Oct. 27, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area hit middle age, celebrating 50 years since its formation. Stretching from Alcatraz to Crissy Field to The Presidio to Rancho Corral de Tierra in San Mateo County, GGNRA manages some of the most popular tourist destinations in the region — as well as favorite locales for locals.

To commemorate the year, GGNRA is offering numerous events throughout the next year.  There are monthly guided walks exploring “Presidio: Changes Through Time,” a “Fee Free Day: at Alcatraz,” a poster contest (the deadline is fast approaching: Dec. 16), opportunities for the community to share their GGNRA memories, and more. You can find a schedule of GGNRA 50th anniversary events at
