  • Winter Surf Warning

    Every year people drown in the surf off Northern California beaches - don't let it be you! Be extra alert on park beaches during the winter storm season. Do not turn your back on the shoreline and watch for extra powerful “sneaker” waves.

Park Planning and Projects

The Division of Planning is responsible for preparing, updating and implementing plans and Park projects. Park planners specialize in project management and design, review other agency projects and neighboring development plans, and manage compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other laws and regulations. Planning staff are also responsible for preparing environmental documents such as categorical exclusions, environmental assessments (EA), and environmental impact statements (EIS).

This site is dedicated to providing the public with more information on planning activities and projects within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and how to stay involved in the planning process. Below are a variety of ways to be involved:
