We’re doing something that we’ve never done before: In partnership with our friends at PianFrancisco, Art in the Parks will be putting pianos in one of San Francisco’s oldest and most iconic buildings, Fort Point.

Located under the Golden Gate Bridge, Fort Point was built over 150 years ago to protect the San Francisco Bay from potential intruders. It’s an architectural gem that offers breathtaking views of the world’s most photographed bridge. Art in the Parks brings creative programs that are unexpected, inspirational, and transformative in the Golden Gate National Parks.

Saturday, August 24, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Sunday, August 25, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, we’ll be joined by renowned pianists from San Francisco and National Park Rangers for an afternoon of classical music and fascinating stories about Fort Point’s colorful past. Enjoy this unique tour of the historic site and get to know your park through music. Entry to the Fort and the concert is free.

Friday, August 23 – Sunday, August 25
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

This event is presented by PianFrancisco in partnership with the Parks Conservancy and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Read more at www.parksconservancy.org/pianfrancisco.
