We aim to remove barriers so all communities can experience and enjoy the Presidio.
There are communities that have historically felt unwelcome or have not had access to national parks – including people of color, people with disabilities, and those with lower income. So we offer a variety of programs and services to reach diverse Bay Area residents, asking “how can this park be a resource for your community?”
The National Park Service also offers community outreach programs. Learn more on their website.
We aim to make it easier for local communities to visit and explore their national park site.
Classrooms, conference rooms, an outdoor courtyard, picnic tables, and more can be reserved by qualifying community groups at Presidio Tunnel Tops for retreats, meetings, and events. Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) reserved the Crissy Field Center courtyard to celebrate Lunar New Year with their member organizations.
Qualifying community groups and schools can a get a special reservation window to book a group camping site at Rob Hill through the Monarch Week program.
We work with community groups to welcome and lead visits in various languages. Printed materials are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Community Expert Francisco Ferrer, with the help of our Community Partnerships team, explored the Outpost playground and Field Station with Spanish-speaking families from the Edgewood Center for Children and Families.
The Presidio GO Shuttle can bring community groups to visit the park. For example, the Rafiki Coalition for Health and Wellness visited the park for a Pollinator Walk with our Community Partnerships and Natural Resources teams.
