East Black Point, a quiet and all but forgotten spot, neglected for decades, and tucked away above the hustling bustling San Francisco waterfront. Located within Fort Mason, the site was developed with gardens and pathways in the 1850s by early San Francisco residents. Sheltered from the wind and offering striking views of the bay and city, it's easy to see why the hillside was a favored place for the community to garden and stroll. With volunteer support, the beautiful garden pathways have been unearthed, the site brought back to life, and Black Point is now open to the public.


Join us in stewarding this special place! We still have a lot of work to do to make this special space feel like a garden again. Volunteers will help to remove invasive species that have overwhelmed the site and revegetate the garden with a mix of native species and horticultural species that were planted by the residents over 100 years ago! Activities primarily include weeding, pruning, and planting.


NOTE: Registration is required for this event, please visit the parks conservancy website to register for this event. Applying on volunteer.gov is not sufficient for registration.
