The Golden Gate National Parks were established in 1972 to preserve and protect remarkable parklands north and south of the Golden Gate.
Take a moment and try to imagine if that did not happen.
In the Marin Headlands, there were plans to build a 50,000-person planned community named Marincello, with 15-story towers and many private homes. Concerned Bay Area residents rallied together and created a national park instead. Through ongoing community engagement and support from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, these PARKS FOR ALL FOREVER will continue to thrive for generations to come.
