Parking in the Presidio

If you need drive to the Presidio, you’ll find convenient paid parking near your destination.

We love it when you take public transit or bike to the Presidio…but if driving is a must, you’ll find convenient parking around the park.

Parking is available throughout the Presidio near visitor and business destinations, including Presidio Visitor Center. 

Parking is paid and regulated every day of the week, including Sundays. Always look for and follow posted regulations, which differ around the Presidio. Parking regulations are enforced by the United States Park Police. Parking fees help sustain the Presidio as a national park for all – thank you!

Pay-and-Display Parking Machines

Buy a daily or hourly parking permit from a Pay-and-Display station and put it on your windshield. Prices are based on the location and day of the week. Pay stations accept credit and debit cards, and many accept coins.​
