GOLDEN GATE NACIONAL PARKS – New Waterfront Park, Black Point Historic Gardens, Opens on August 24th

You will be able to enjoy a great view of the Aquatic Park and Alcatraz, viewpoints that have been fenced off for more than 50 years!
At Black Point Historic Gardens, an outdoor staircase connects to newly restored pathways, budding gardens and terraced lands, offering unobstructed views of the Bay. Together with the National Park Service, and with the help of donors, volunteers, and community partners, the Parks Conservancy removed 65 years’ worth of overgrown vegetation, collected and disposed over 2,000 pounds of trash, and replanted 8,000 native plants.
Since the 1850s, walkways, stairs, and gardens have led from bluff top residences to the waterfront. August 2021 marks the first time this area will be open to the general public. This public, open space is an example of the lasting impact of the dedication of the Parks Conservancy, the National Park Service, donors, volunteers and valued community partners.
