This is an opportunity for interested parties to share their ideas for joining a community of National Park Service partner organizations at a former Army installation located on a spectacular site adjacent to the Golden Gate Bridge.
GGNRA is interested in a partnership to develop a maritime recreation center within the facilities at this site in order to provide a diverse mix of programs and services including, but not strictly limited to, the following:
Property Overview - Fort Baker
The Historic Boat Shop and Marina facilities are located at the northeast corner of Horseshoe Bay in Fort Baker; south of Sausalito, California and adjacent to the north tower of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The 335-acre former Army base is a bowl-shaped valley and includes 183 acres of tidelands, featuring more than a mile of relatively pristine rocky bay shoreline and the 10-acre breakwater-protected Horseshoe Bay.
