Chrissy Field was previously an airfield but now a recreation area. Not much to write home about apart from the fact you pass through it on your bike ride to Golden Gate Bridge. It's kept very clean and tidy and a lot of people were making the most of it on the pleasant day we biked through.

I like visiting Crissy Field because it is less crowded than the Fisherman's wharf area and you get great views of both the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island. I also didn't have any problem finding parking (free) which is nearly impossible in the more touristy areas of the city.

Could have love it if not for the chilly wind and water, so bring your cold gears. Another great view of Golden Gate Bridge. Great to see dogs enjoying the weather.

Such a nice place. Perfect for taking pictures with the Golden Gate as background. You can also walk, and spend some time admiring the view, Both Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate.

This is another great view the city has to offer. It's in the Presidio so it is serviced by their shuttle. It seemed to be a dogwalker's ideal place. And the dogs loved it too! There was pure joy on their little faces as they ran as fast as they could.

A great area to take a walk by yourself, with friends, or with your four-legged companions. Advice: Always dress in layers when visiting, be aware of your surroundings and potential hazards -- lot's of tourist on bikes!

Had a great Large (100+) Family picnic here. This used to be a sea plane landing area during the war. Now its a great fishing dock and grassy fields for picnics and games.

Are you kidding me? A full and close view of the Golden Gate bridge combined with great San Francisco energy made this place a unique one. When I first visited this place, it was a birthday celebration. Yes, this place has picnic groves and you can use it for free. I love to keep coming to this place in SF.
