Lost Cemetery of Lincoln Park History Walk WNP Event

Oct 28, 2023 5:00pm-7:00pm (Saturday)

Join historian and retired park ranger John Martini on this twilight exploration of Lincoln Park and discover forgotten funerary monuments along the golf course fairways. Few people realize that today's Lincoln Park Golf Course was once "City Cemetery," the final resting place for tens of thousands of San Franciscans, including a Chinese burial ground and the municipal paupers' graveyard called Potter's Field. The walk ends at the Palace of the Legion of Honor.

Our journey begins at 5:00pm and takes about 1.5 hours. Grade: moderate with some uphill sections and lawn.

Please register through Eventbrite. $10 for WNP members (and we absorb your Eventbrite fees) and $20 for non-members. The super secret meeting location will be emailed to you when tickets are purchased. The walk is limited to 30 people.
