Dedicated to the Preservation of the Historic Golden Gate Park Music Concourse

The Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park is changing at a rapid rate. A new garage has been built on either side of the Music Concourse Bowl, underneath the roadways. The deYoung Museum has reopened. The Music Concourse Bowl renovation is also complete. The California Academy of Sciences' new building has been completed, bringing thousands of new visitors to this extraordinary landscape.

To preserve this area, onJanuary 15, 2006, the Music Concourse Bowl achieved San Francisco Landmark status, as San Francisco Landmark No. 249.

Friends of the Music Concourse has advocated preserving the historic tree grid and the remaining elements in the Concourse during all of this change. We will also advocate for funding for enhanced maintenance for the Bowl, its trees, and its historic elements in the future.

San Franciscans truly love the Music Concourse. This area is worthy of protection during the current construction as well as specialized attention for the future. Together we can maintain this historic sylvan retreat as a gathering place for all visitors to enjoy.
