Tour

The Golden Gate National Parks are one of San Francisco’s great gems and feature the work of dozens of Bay Area landscape architects and designers.

On Saturday, April 6, The Cultural Landscape Foundation will host a daylong excursion through several of the Parks’ recently completed projects, with tours led by many of the landscape architects involved and senior representatives from the Parks’ stewards - the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and The Presidio Trust. 

Destinations during the excursion include The Presidio, a park and former military base at the mouth of San Francisco Bay; the mysterious aquarium and bathhouse ruins at the Sutro Baths complex; the transformed airfield of Crissy Field; a sumptuous lunch at Fort Mason’s Greens Restaurant, and several other sites. The day will close with a visit to the garden of the former residence of the pioneering landscape architect Thomas Church, a giant of Modernism known for the groundbreaking Donnell Garden in Sonoma, San Francisco’s Parkmerced, and nearly 2,000 gardens nationwide. The tour will depart from and return to Cavallo Point in Sausalito.
