Enjoy the outdoors under a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge at Crissy Field. Known as the Presidio’s front door, the former air base-turned-into-a-park is a favorite recreational area for both locals and visitors. The area is clean, safe, and well maintained and is particularly popular with cyclists and joggers. If you want to relax, you can enjoy the sandy beach or go for a picnic. The kids enjoy wide-open areas to play, while the pet owners can take their dogs off the leash and let them splash in the surf. Bring sunglasses and layered clothes, because the San Francisco weather can be chilly and windy, even in the summer months.   Using our world travel planner, San Francisco attractions like Crissy Field can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • We walked from the Palace of fine arts through Crissy fields back to Fisherman’s Wharf. It was a tough walk but worth doing. The views of The Golden Gate Bridge are great.

  • This place is great! Right at the base of the golden gate bridge, there's a beautiful grass picnic area, gated access to the beach, and very clean! Plenty of free weekday parking and then just a buck an hour on the weekend. It's my dog's favorite place on earth so mine too!
  • Crissy Field is one of my favourite places to visit. With the Golden Gate Bridge in background I’m sure it’s the same for many. I never miss when visiting San Francisco but this visit (June 2022) was a bit disappointing as the amenities and general maintenance of the area has went downhill since last visit in 2018. The main grass area where kids and adults alike play games and picnic is rough with very uneven surface. I went over on my ankle twice playing with my grandchildren. I don’t remember it ever being this bad before. Hoping things improve by next visit.
