Tiburon Peninsula is a unique community. Just 10 minutes north
of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, it’s surrounded
by water and spectacular views, beautiful open spaces and walkable
ridges. For generations, residents have enjoyed the spectacular
beauty and tight camaraderie found in the community.
In 1969 a group of residents formed the Tiburon Peninsula Foundation
with the goal of preserving the area’s rich heritage while insuring
its future. Thanks to generous donations from local citizens
and businesses, the non-profit foundation has sponsored many
projects, including improving and maintaining Blackie’s Pasture,
restoring oysters and salmon to Richardson Bay, and creating
the Tiburon Historical Trail, a walking tour of historical sites
with informational markers that brings the area’s special past
