Guardian of the Golden Gate for more than 200 years, the Presidio of San Francisco is a place of service and possibility. Now a distinctive part of the national park system, this magnificent American landmark invites visitors to be inspired by its beauty and to participate in a variety of programs that draw on its history and natural resources. The Presidio is also home to a vibrant community of people who work and live in the park.
The 1,500-acre Presidio is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, one of the world’s largest national parks in an urban setting, spanning over 80,000 acres north and south of San Francisco’s Golden Gate.
