The Presidio is a beautiful place to relax in San Francisco. Before being given to the U.S. Army, the park was a Spanish military station. Now a public park. The woodland pathways and roads are perfect for hiking and riding. Visit one of the region’s museums or historic sites to learn more about it.
Presidio recreation includes:
Start by taking a stroll and enjoying the environment. Several paths in this national park provide views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay (when not foggy). Old Post Hospital and Letterman Digital Arts Center provide further information about these landmarks (formerly Letterman Hospital).
