Alcatraz Island, A Nationa Park on San Francisco Bay

The small island was developed with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison, and a federal prison from 1934 until 21 March 1963. The water currents around the island were high at all times, which presumably decreased the chance of an inmate escaping.[from wikipedia]
