There has been a fort on this site since 1797 when the Mexican Army built along the coastline. The U.S. military took ownership in 1850, the same year that California joined the United States, and built Fort Mason. The site was redeveloped as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in 1972 and entered a new lease of life.
Fort Mason Center is under the auspices of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It is the most visited National Park in the United States and can conveniently be reached by car or public transport in San Francisco. On-site parking is also available.
