Due to the government shutdown, park staff is limited to maintain health and safety operations. Visitors are asked to "Pack it In and Pack it Out” at sites with no trash removal services. Trash and bathroom services will be unavailable or closed entirely to comply with government shutdown requirements.

An agreement with Alcatraz Cruises will continue to support park operations with visitor services (“Day Tour” only) at Alcatraz Island. A similar agreement with the Siren Canteen is in place to open Stinson Park on Friday, January 18 through Monday, January 21.

Fort Funston is open through Thursday, January 24 thanks to donations by the SFDog group for basic trash removal.   

Thanks to donations from park concession operator Muir Woods Trading Company, Muir Woods National Monument is open. 

The Marin Headlands Holiday Traffic Plan will extend through Monday, January 28. This decision was made to maintain staff focus on health and safety operations in the park during the government shutdown.

Additional facilities and areas may close within Golden Gate National Recreation Area at any time for the health and safety of park visitors.
