The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) has approved a permit for the Patriot Prayer group for a rally at Crissy Field on Saturday, August 26 at 2 p.m.

The City has no jurisdiction over Crissy Field. Crissy Field is owned and operated by the Federal Government and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) is responsible for permitting all events.

The Mayor’s number one priority is the safety and well-being of the residents of San Francisco.

The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) is working with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the United States Parks Police on a comprehensive public safety plan. Read the SFPD Advisory for August 26 Events.
