This is definitely one of the best places to go to if you want to have a good view both of the Golden Bridge and the Alcatraz. It is less crowded compared to the Presidio area and has a vaster parking area.

Crissy Field is recently renovated and the walk along the water is lovely- You can walk from Presidio to underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Just the best! Better if you have a pup and leash. Lots of runners. A treasure

Crissy Field was a former U.S. Army airfield and was closed in 1974. It is now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. A great place to have a picnic!

the beach is fairly small. and its usually pretty windy. but there are no life guards or rangers that i'm aware of...so a temporary 10 x10 ...my guess...probably OK.
