Assistive Listening Program
The park has been working on improving park programs for visitors who are hard of hearing. We have been working with contractors, park staff, and visitors to ensure that visitors who are hard of hearing have the opportunity to effectively participate in Ranger and Docent led tours. We are in the process of implementing Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) throughout our parks. More information is provided below.
Alcatraz Assistive Listening Program
This program begins at the ticket booth when you pick up your tickets and check in with the staff. You can be outfitted with a receiver at the booth and ask question regarding its use.
The Pier 33 announcement, boat announcements, Alcatraz dock announcement, and the intro video "Stories From The Rock" are all on channel 3. But you will have to change the tactile knob to other channels for docent led tours and other programs throughout the park.
Muir Woods Assistive Listening Program
The Muir Woods Assistive Listening Program is currently available at the visitor center at Muir Woods.
If you are planning on taking a docent lead tour and require assistive listening, please ask a Ranger or Parks Conservancy docent at the visitor center to provide you with a receiver.
Fort Point Assistive Listening Program
Assistive Listening Devices are available at Fort Point. Please ask a Ranger for assistance. The devices are available for all Ranger Led Tours, the videos shown in the theater and the Golden Gate Bridge Exhibit.
Marin Headlands Assistive Listening ProgramAssitive Listening Devices are available for all Ranger Led Tours offered within Marin Headlands. Please visit the Marin Headlands Visitor Center or ask a Park Ranger for more information.
