As of Wednesday, November 21, Golden Gate National Recreation Area (including Alcatraz Island, Fort Point National Historic Site, and Muir Woods National Monument) will resume visitor services. Since Friday, November 16, the San Francisco Bay Area has experienced unhealthy air quality as a result of California fires. We anticipate continued visitor services for Friday, November 23, and through the holiday weekend, provided air quality conditions remain healthy. Said park Communications Director Charlie Strickfaden, "We thank the public for their patience and understanding while we implemented safety precautions for visitors and staff over the last week."
Park Traveler Alert for Inclement Weather
Visitors to the area are encouraged to monitor weather forecasts and use caution during travel to park sites. Heavy rain is forecast in the San Francisco Bay Area this week. Extreme weather events following many months of dry weather can cause slick roads and potential mudslides.
