Community Access & Visits

We aim to remove barriers so all communities can experience and enjoy the Presidio.

We invite community groups to the park and remove tangible and intangible barriers so that the Presidio will be a park for all.

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?”

Additional Resources

The National Park Service also offers community outreach programs. Learn more on their website.

Presidio Community Access Programs

We aim to make it easier for local communities to visit and explore their national park site.

Guided and Self-Guided Experiences in Multiple Language

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.
