In 2016, more than 19 million people visited the Bay Area’s Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
The park runs from Marin through San Francisco to San Mateo County, and is home to many popular destinations such as Muir Woods, Land’s End, and the Marin Headlands, and in addition is a popular destination for families and children to engage in recreational activities.
