Nearby Miley Playground is a delightful park for children and their parents. Cow Hollow is bordered to the west by the Presidio - a mature forest of pine, cypress, and eucalyptus trees which the army began planting in the 1880s. To the north is the Palace of Fine Arts, and Crissy Field, originally a rich salt marsh at the bay’s edge and now a wildlife sanctuary and urban park. Just beyond is the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Marin Headlands. All are protected sites within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), one of the largest urban national parks in the world, and featuring virtually every recreational possibility imaginable, as well as cafés, restaurants, and a spa. It is no wonder that this location is one of the city’s most desirable.
