  • This Park has two parts:-an adjoining Museum with the hotel Argonaut in a brick building, restored old cannery. Museum on the history of the port of San Francisco very well presented, a lot of atmosphere. -in front on the pier several ships that can be visited. Do not miss a visit to the tall ship Balclutha. Great view of the Bay, Alcatraz and the port.

  • Un parke muy limpio
  • A wonderful effort is being put in here to save and restore some truly historic vessels. It was great to have open access to see their workshops and their use of traditional boat building practices.
  • This is an absolutely beautiful park with some really amazing spots. I went here with a bunch of friends for a day of hiking, picnicing, and general messing about. The park rangers do a really good job keeping the area neat and I will definitely be going back for =some more outdoor fun.
  • Great place to visit. I go there often each time I go to San Francisco. During the fleet week this is a one of the place you have to go.
  • A great park to relax at or watch fireworks for the 4th of July celebration. This was the first place I've been able to watch fireworks at with my feet in the sand (just be sure to find out when high tide comes in if you plan on watching from the beach). It's close to Ghirardelli Square and has good views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
