"Crissy Field" Crissy Field Tip by Tom_Fields
Crissy Field, San Francisco: 6 reviews and 13 photos
Here is a favorite hangout for the locals, a place to hike, run, jog, ride bikes, and just take a break from the city. It offers some great views of San Francisco Bay, and a sanctuary for all kinds of marine and coastal life.
This is where some of the early Spanish, Russian, and English visitors landed. It was the site of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition; sadly, all the buildings from that event are gone except the Palace of Fine Arts (where the Exploratorium now stands). After that, this became a US Army airfield, which closed after World War II. In 1962, it was designated a National Historic Landmark.
Crissy Field Center provides a wealth of information about this highly sensitive eco-system, and its history. By the way, if you visit then please stay on the trails at all times. The coastal vegetation here is fragile, and easily damaged by people trampling on it.
