About the Presidio Trust

Learn about our work to steward and share this remarkable national park site.

The Presidio Trust, with the Partnership for the Presidio, is working to keep this national park site beautiful and welcoming for generations to come.

Our mission is to steward and share the history, beauty, and wonder of the Presidio for everyone to enjoy forever.

As a federal agency working in service to the public, we’re guided by a triple bottom line: welcoming all people and protecting the planet, fueled by the performance of successful park businesses.

The Presidio Trust is led by a Board of Directors and an executive team. Staff members represent many disciplines and include ecologists, planners, building stewards, utility workers, IT professionals, leasing specialists, and much more.

In a relatively short space of time the San Francisco Presidio has been transformed from a former military outpost designed to ‘keep people out’, into one of the most welcoming and well-facilitated public resources the judges have ever visited. The management team is focused and committed to preserving and further enhancing the park.””
