Picture a 3.5-mile stretch of white beach with few tourists and no highrises. It's just you and the waves and the seabirds at Ocean Beach, on the westernmost border of San Francisco, adjacent to Golden Gate Park. Great for strolling and flying kites, but the water is frigid and the currents hazardous for all but the most experienced surfers.

Ocean Beach Fire Program

The National Park Service (NPS) has completed its planning process and made a decision on the elements of the final Ocean Beach Fire Program. The final program includes 12 elements designed to create a safe, manageable, and sustainable beach fire program. The final program has been developed following a 44-day public review and comment period, and the NPS made a number of changes based on public comment. Through the diligent effort of San Francisco District One Supervisor Eric Mar, the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department (SFRPD) has been allocated funds to assist NPS in providing support for maintenance, solid waste collection, public education, and outreach for the program.

The final Ocean Beach Fire Program, including the new curfew, will go into effect on April 4, 2016.
