Get an overview of the history, vision, and strategy that shapes the Presidio of San Francisco.
Long home to native people and later a military post under three flags, it’s now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It’s managed by the Presidio Trust, with the Partnership for the Presidio.
Today’s Presidio is a city within a city – and an oasis for rare wildlife. It’s a global visitor destination – and a bus ride away for millions of people. It’s a public park – and a place where people live and businesses thrive. And unlike other national parks, it’s operated with funds earned here, with every dollar spent going right back into park preservation.
While a beloved landmark, the Presidio is always transforming to be relevant and meaningful for its time. It’s a place that delivers all the great experiences you’d expect from a national park – and lots of surprises for visitors.
The park is a backdrop for events and activities of all kinds. The Presidio Trust issues permits for camping, large outdoor gatherings, races and runs, playing fields, and more.
