Coastline by Crissy field

In the premiere episode of California’s Golden Coast, Huell learns about an inspiring success story. Located at the Presidio in San Francisco, once a U.S. Army outpost and cornerstone of military operations on the West Coast, Crissy Field became the most significant site of aviation development in the western United States in the early part of the 20th Century.

Today, it is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and has been transformed from 100 acres of asphalt surrounded by chain link fence to a magnificent shoreline, which includes tidal marshes, pristine beaches and grassy green fields.
