Crissy Field Next Invites You to a June 1 Open House at East Beach
Review preliminary design concepts based on public input, share feedback, and learn more
WHAT: The National Park Service, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and the Presidio Trust are embarking upon the next chapter of Crissy Field’s revitalization, and request public input and participation.
In fall 2018, we kicked off the Crissy Field Next project with over 600 attendees excited to contribute to the future of Crissy Field. Throughout the fall, we also held several Roving Ranger Pop-Ups to continue to solicit ideas and feedback from people actively enjoying Crissy Field. We learned that while people love Crissy Field, there is untapped potential for visitors to enjoy the park in new ways in the future. Here is a capture of what we heard.
The project team invites the public to join us for the Crissy Field Next Open House. Attendees will be able to look over initial design concepts for each area of Crissy Field and chat with park experts and the project team to share their feedback and ideas.
This free, family-friendly celebration includes snacks and several activity stations:
- • Art Lab: Discover untold stories of Crissy Field and create mini-comic books.
- • Eco Lab: Learn more about wetlands through hands-on activities.
- • Media Lab: Experience the future Tunnel Tops project through a 3D model video.
- • Backyard: Make your own trail mix and meet the Ohlone sisters.
Or, relax on the lawns with snacks and games.
WHEN: Saturday, June 1 from 10 am to 2 pm.
WHERE: Crissy Field Center. 1199 East Beach, The Presidio. San Francisco, CA 94129.
For those who can’t make it to the June 1 Open House, the Roving Ranger will continue to welcome walk-up feedback at Crissy Field throughout the summer. We want to make sure everyone who wants to give us feedback, gets a chance.
WHY: Nearly 20 years after its restoration, Crissy Field is situated in a growing urban population, with unique natural and cultural features, and a changing climate. The Crissy Field Next project is important to in order to enhance the area’s many current uses, while improving ways for people to gather, create, and play.
