The Mount Tamalpais State Park is a state park and natural monument in Mill Valley, California. It features the 2,571 feet Mount Tamalpais and its surrounding area.

The Mount Tamalpais State Park was established in 1963 as a state park, but it has already been used as a public venue as early as 1913. In those early days, it started hosting theatrical performances in a natural ampotheater setting known as the Mountain Plays. Folks who want to watch the shows will have to hike or ride the Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods Railway during the first two decades. But by 1933, the Sidney B. Cushing Memorial Ampitheater (also known as the Mountain Theatre) was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in honor of Cushing who made the railway possible. Today, it still hosts productions every spring.
