The goals of the enhancements are to improve the visitor experience on the east side of the Bridge by augmenting visitor services, improving orientation/wayfinding; improving traffic flow, visitor access and site circulation; improving site accessibility; addressing parking and visitor safety issues; and enhancing historic, natural, and recreational resources in the area. The proposed improvements are consistent with the 1994 NPS General Management Plan Amendment for the Presidio, the approved Presidio Trails and Bikeways Plan and the Presidio Vegetation Management Plan.
The Parks Conservancy and NPS, as a lasting legacy to the famed span, have developed a series of visitor enhancements to obtain these goals and significantly expand opportunities and experiences for visitors to discover the rich history of this internationally acclaimed engineering marvel.
Improvements planned include:
- Construction of a new visitor Pavilion to serve as a welcome and interpretive center;
- Renovation of the historic Round House;
- Upgrades to the Bridge Café; and
- Enhancements to the Bridge Plaza and Golden Gate National Recreation Area surrounding parklands.
Updates about site improvements and the 75th anniversary program will be posted at www.goldengatebridge75.org as they become available.
