Golden Gate National Recreation Area

Treasures of America's most-visited national park.

The most visited national park in America (Published Friday, Sept. 4, 2015)

It’s America’s most visited National Park, 80,000 acres stretching across three counties from Tomales Bay in the north to the hills and coastline of San Mateo County.  The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is an uncommon, common good.  With its natural splendor and diversity and its profound historic roots, from its famous landmarks to its less well-known gems, the GGNRA  truly is a much-beloved park for all forever.  We tell the tale of how this National Park, one of the first two established in the midst of an urban area,  came to be.  We meet some of the people who gave it life and have given it shape, purpose and success over the past four decades.  And then Doug takes viewers on a short tour of a few of his favorite locations in Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties.
