Fort Baker / Cavallo Point

Project Description

Fort Baker, part of the Golden Gate National Parks, is a 335 acre former 1905 U.S. Army post located immediately north of the Golden Gate Bridge. This hidden gem of a site consists of over 25 historic army buildings clustered around a main parade ground, a sheltered harbor protected by a jetty, a number of historic gun emplacements, and trails and forested areas climbing gently up from San Francisco Bay.

Cavallo Point, The Lodge at Golden Gate, is approximately 276,000 square feet of landscape and irrigated area. The controllers (9 controllers) are all weather-based and receive daily weather data from a local weather station.
