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.

  • Crissy Field is one of the top areas of San Francisco to visit. Anytime i am in the Marina District neighborhood, i stop by Crissy Field to enjoy the great weather. I particularly like to walk in the area of Fort Point. The opportunity for people watching is also a good choice. The Crissy Field area has many opportunities for exercise, picnicking, and photos. The only challenge i encountered was parking. I definitely recommend a visit.
  • I was there in Aug 2021 and it's partially under construction. I used Google maps to get around and had no problems. Lots of people out enjoying the huge lawn, walking and biking trails. The buildings are interesting though very little is open. Awesome place.
