The naturalistic beauty of the western end of Golden Gate Park and of the Beach Chalet fields.

Golden Gate Park  -  Mission Statement (Golden Gate Park Master Plan, 1988)

 

"The purpose of Golden Gate Park is to serve as an open space preserve in the midst of San Francisco. This historic park is a cultivated pastoral and sylvan landscape, defined by an abundant evergreen woodland. It is designed and managed to afford opportunities for all to experience beauty, tranquillity, recreation, and relief from urban pressures. . . "

A true GRASSROOTS group formed to give you a chance to vote on artificial turf and lights in Golden Gate Park!  Over 98,000 people voted to protect the park -- but over $900,000 was spent to defeat the ballot initiative and to destroy the western end of Golden Gate Park.  Learn more at: Coalition to Protect Golden Gate Park at: www.protectggp.org .
