Partners in the Parks: Golden Gate National Recreation Area

Few places on the West Coast have the density of natural, historical, and cultural experiences that San Francisco provides. This Partners in the Parks experience brings elements of City/Place as Text together with Partners in the Park. Dating back over 200 years of western cultural history, San Francisco and its Presidio trace the political, military, and cultural evolution of the US and California.
