Marina Green

This 74-acre grassy expanse is irresistible to those northside dwellers and tourists looking to sunbathe, picnic, fly a kite or simply take in the knockout views of Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts. Prior to the 1906 earthquake, the entire area was marshland. When you hear those rumors about the Marina being built on landfill, this is what folks have in mind. The ground beneath the park consists of rubble from that era, making this not only one of the city’s most valued outdoor destinations, but a historic one as well.
