    Attractions in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area will reopen Wednesday because the air quality in the Bay Area is forecasted to improve, National Park Service officials said Tuesday.

    Attractions including Alcatraz Island, the Fort Point National Historic Site and Muir Woods National Monument will re-open with visitor services during regular hours. The attractions have been closed since Friday due to unhealthy air conditions.

    With heavy rain forecast this week, park service officials also encouraged visitors to use caution when visiting park areas due to potential slick roads and mudslides.

    National Park Service officials also issued a reminder that the following attractions will be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday: Alcatraz Island, Fort Point National Historic Site (closed Thursday and Friday), Golden Gate Bridge Welcome Center, Lands End Lookout Marin Headlands Visitor Center, and the Presidio San Francisco Visitor Center.
