"Destroy a public building and it can be rebuilt in a year; destroy a city woodland park and all the people living at the time will have passed away before its restoration can be effected."

Mission Statement

Ever since its creation in the 1800's Golden Gate Park has been a treasured landscape for all San Franciscans. Since that time, there have been many threats to its continuing as open space.

As San Francisco becomes more dense and urbanized, the need for unprogrammed open space becomes greater.  There is a tendency on the part of some to look at open space and to say, "What can we build here?"  or "How can we activate this space?"  
GGPPA believes that open space has value for itself -- it is a place to unwind, to relax, and to reconnect with nature.  Experiencing nature in our parkland is something that everyone can do, without paying a fee and no matter their physical condition or age --  young children and seniors alike can enjoy the pleasures of a quiet meadow in the early morning or the sunset over the ocean.
GGPPA is dedicated to preserving the heritage of open space in  Golden Gate Park for the use of San Franciscans today and for the enjoyment of future generations.
