Fort Mason is graced by the beautiful Great
Meadow. This rambling lawn is dotted only with a few trees, a curved
walkway, Benny Bufano's Madonna, and a statue of Congressman Phil Burton.
Burton's efforts created the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in 1972.
While the Great Meadow is its glory, Upper
Fort Mason also features postcard views
of the Golden Gate, Bay, and Marina,
as well as some interesting architectural
highlights. (Bay Street between Van Ness Avenue and Laguna)
