FOIA: Reading Room

Welcome to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area FOIA Reading Room

Here you may review responsive documents to some of the Freedom of Information Act requests received by the park. For a complete list of requests by fiscal year, and their status, refer to the FOIA Log. The current fiscal year log is updated regularly.

Some information in the Reading Room is considered "raw data" collected by park staff and volunteers and not yet analyzed. Some information is analyzed and presented in the form of final reports.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of the available files are quite large which can result in lengthy download times. Please refer to the type and size of file in parentheses.

Superintendent Exemption

Based on the advice of counsel, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area management has chosen to publicly post the contents of Freedom of Information Act requests on our website. We understand that under this policy some PDF files are posted that are not compliant with the Section 508 Amendment to the Rehabilitation Act of 1073, specifically for accessibility to people who use adaptive technologies. We are committed to complying with this important requirement and will make records available in alternative formats upon request. Requests can be made at PHONE (415-561-4700) or by email at:
