Something new at Ocean Beach

For visitors to the Sutro Heights, Cliff House. and Land's End area, the National Park Service has opened a new visitor center. It's a replacement for one that existed years ago in the old Cliff House before it was renovated.


This article focuses more on the design and setting; the reporter is the Chronicle's architecture writer. As soon as I can get out there, I'll try to bring the visitor and NPS volunteer perspective and come back and tell what it's like. If someone beats me to it, I'll look forward to your TR.

Thanks for posting this, Frisco. I'm going to try to get out there when I'm visiting in two weeks.

IMO it's rather cumbersome looking and is too far forward in the sight line ... it should be behind the parking lot.

But it's nowhere near as awful as the new visitor center at the GG Bridge.
