Commonwealth Club of California presents: 


Golden Gate Park Under Siege?


Treasured by millions of people from all over the world, Golden Gate Park’s meadows, forests, and lakes have served as a refuge from the pressures of urban life for both people and wildlife for over 140 years. Yet throughout its history, the park continues to attract those who view it as free land available for their favorite projects.   In addition, with the current short-term budget crises, some view the park as a source of revenue rather than a precious civic asset to be protected. 


Join us to learn about current plans for Golden Gate Park and what can be done to protect our premier open space today and for future generations.
