The possibilities are endless in the Presidio of San Francisco. A national model for cultural, educational, historical, and natural spaces, the Presidio offers opportunities to explore an array of activities that unite to educate and inspire. A heritage site situated in a national park, the former Army Post is an all-in-one destination with hiking trails, art, and cultural events.
One of the many ways to enjoy the outdoors in the Presidio is by exploring its 24 miles of trails. Go on a three-mile self-guided tour of the Presidio's outdoor art gallery, a collection of Andy Goldsworthy's sculptural installations made entirely from the Presidio's own natural materials.
Visitors are welcome to picnic along the Main Parade Ground and enjoy lawn games, free entertainment, and more at the Presidio Picnic.
There's plenty to explore indoors, too. The Officers’ Club is a combination museum and cultural events center with many events free of charge. Head over to the Walt Disney Family Museum to see the life and legacy of Walt Disney come to life through his early drawings, cartoons, rare footage, and much more. There are many free activities in the Presidio, including the scavenger hunt.
Stop in the Presidio Visitor Center, open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., for a map and more information. The Presidio is easily accessible via the PresidiGo Shuttle, a free shuttle between downtown San Francisco's Embarcadero and the Presidio.
