Marina Green in San Francisco

The Marina Green in San Francisco

The Marina Green is a 74-acre grassy area between the Presidio and Fort Mason in San Francisco, with great views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The photo above shows the Marina Green and the houses, built mainly in the 1920s and 1930s, that line Marina Boulevard on the southern edge of Marina Green. A marina that is adjacent to Marina Green is home to the St. Francis Yacht Club and the Golden Gate Yacht Club. The Marina Green is administered by the San Francisco Parks and Recreation Department.

The land beneath Marina Green and the adjacent Marina District neighborhood is mostly “fill” from the rubble of the 1906 Earthquake and also fill brought in to create space for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. The domed structure in this photo taken from Inspiration Point is part of the restored Palace of Fine Arts, a remnant from the Exposition.
