Explore the Presidio of San Francisco
A Wealth Of Options
Millions people a year are discovering the adventures this 1,500-acre national park has to offer. In today’s Presidio, visitors can hike on a 24-mile network of trails; discover art exhibitions indoors and out, including works by famed artist Andy Goldsworthy; soak in incredible Golden Gate views; visit San Francisco’s oldest building reborn as a museum and cultural center; jump on a trampoline in a former airplane hangar; bird watch at restored wetlands; and relax at San Francisco’s largest picnic, which draws 5,000 people each spring/summer weekend with international food and dance. Even better – all park-sponsored events and activities are free, making the Presidio an affordable and accessible destination that’s welcoming to all. Your national park adventure begins at the new Presidio Visitor Center.
Within minutes of leaving the Presidio grounds, you have access to Fisherman’s Wharf, North Beach, neighborhoods with the best shopping and best food in San Francisco, and access to Marin, Sonoma, and Napa to the north.
