“Boyd Park: A History”
Guided by Marin historian, Marcie Miller
Starting from the steps of the Boyd Gate House, the Marin History
Museum leads a scenic uphill hike through Boyd Park to San
Rafael Hill’s aqua fir trees. Hear stories of the construction of
Boyd Park – quite a feat back in the day – the grounds’ late 1800s
Victorian use, and the dangers and accidents on such a property.
Also included will be discussion about the careful selection of the
park’s botanical plants. And of course, we’ll share an incredible,
rarely seen view of the town of San Rafael.
Location: Boyd Gate House, 1125 B Street at Mission Avenue, downtown San Rafael
