I live within walking distance of Fort Mason and this national park has become one of my favorite destinations. It is easy walking distance from North Beach, Russian Hill, Cow Hollow and the Marina. Recently I was surprised to find an imaginative outdoor art exhibit called “Seat”. The “Seats” seemed magically appear, and I had a wonderful time trying out all of the Seats in the exhibit. The seats near the end of the pier were especially relaxing. The Farmer’s Market has become a Sunday morning ritual for me, and the library bookstore seems to always have hidden treasures.
Fort Mason’s views of the bay make it an important destination for anyone interested in the Americas Cup coming next year. Besides the website for the Americas Cup there is a Facebook page that will keep you updated.
Last week I attended a meeting of the Luxury Marketing Council, where among other things they discussed new and additional public transportation lines that will be stopping at Fort Mason thoughout the Americas Cup. Visitors will be able to reach Fort Mason, the Marina Green, or Crissy Field quickly from all over the Bay Area using a Clipper Card, freeing them from worry about how much cash they will need to navigate transferring from Bart, Trains and other Bus systems.
Fort Mason has live theater, art shows, and Greens Restaurant a well known destination for foodies. Don’t feel like you have to attend an event to spend an hour, or afternoon at Fort Mason National Park. Just sitting for a while at the end of one of the piers enjoying the view and fresh air is always a pleasure.
