There are 29 National Recreation Areas across America. One of the most distinctive is the Golden Gate National Recreation Area that includes 80,000 acres of ecologically and historically significant destinations around the San Francisco Bay Area.

Attracting more than 15 million visitors annually to its various sites around the Bay, including Muir Woods, the Cliff House, Crissy Field, Alcatraz, and the Presidio of San Francisco, it is one of the world’s largest urban parks.

Some Recreation Areas are under the management of the Department of Agriculture, the Bureau of Land Management, or the U.S. Forest Service, while the National Park Service manages others, including the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Join Correspondent Tom Wilmer reporting from Alcatraz as he visits with Chris Lehnertz, the National Park Service Superintendent of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
