Message from the GGNRA

The National Park Service, Golden Gate National Recreation Area is working to accommodate event spectators for Fleet Week and America’s Cup events while also protecting the amazing natural and cultural resources in its care. Parking will be extremely limited and strictly managed during peak times.

It is highly recommended to use public transit (Muni), bicycle, taxi, carpool, or walk when visiting Fort Point, Lands End, Crissy Field, and Aquatic Park in San Francisco. Similarly, Conzelman Road or Fort Baker in the Marin Headlands will be congested, and parking management in place as needed throughout the event weekend.

All parking is first-come, first-served. People with a valid ADA state placard or license plate will be given first opportunity to look for available parking.

As in past years, many access roads will be closed to vehicle traffic for visitor safety once they are at capacity, and some park areas will be closed to protect wildlife, sensitive habitat, and historic structures. Closures include Marina Boulevard and various parking areas along Crissy Field and upper Fort Mason. Conzelman Road in the Marin Headlands will be very congested and parking is limited. Once the parking is filled the area will be closed.
