The Presidio Trust is a federal agency that manages the Presidio of San Francisco, a national park at the heart of the 82,000-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Spanning nearly 1,500 acres in a spectacular setting at the Golden Gate, the Presidio is defined by its history, spectacular views, natural habitats, and beautiful opens spaces. The Trust has repurposed historic buildings for visitor recreation in the airplane hangars at Crissy Field, which house Planet Granite climbing gym and House of Air Trampoline park. Others include the Presidio Visitor Center, The Presidio Officers’ Club Museum, the Lodge at the Presidio, the Walt Disney Family Museum, and The Commissary restaurant.
The grounds consist of 24 miles of hiking and 25 miles of biking trails, including eight scenic overlooks. The park has recently undergone a 25 year revitalization project which began with a $34.4 million project to revitalize Crissy Field unveiled to the public in May 2001.The project has also restored the national park’s Tennessee Hollow Watershed, returning streams once buried by the Army back to the surface, creating precious habitat for native plants and wildlife as well an opportunity for visitors to experience nature up close. This project takes a major step forward in coming months as seven acres of newly restored marshland link the watershed to San Francisco Bay. Other signature projects include the restoration of Mountain Lake, the creation of a comprehensive trail system with 24 miles of hiking trails and eight scenic overlooks, and the restoration of the historic Main Parade ground as a public gathering space, rehabilitating the Presidio Officers’ Club, one of San Francisco’s oldest buildings that now houses the Presidio’s museum. If you’re hiking along the Bay Area Ridge Trail, you might be surprised to discover a new Presidio landmark of startling grandeur. Standing at 100 feet tall at its tapering peak, Spire is a sculpture by world-renowned artist Andy Goldsworthy. In fact it is the first Presidio piece he was inspired to create after he visited the park in 2006. Since then he has gone on to imagine three more – Wood Line, Tree Fall, and Earth Wall – making the Presidio home to the largest collection of his works on public view in North America.
The Golf Course
Just inside the Presidio’s Arguello Gate, bordered by Monterey Cypress and eucalyptus, is a place where Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schulz, Joe DiMaggio, and Arnold Palmer once swung a club. Presidio Golf Course, one of the oldest courses on the West Coast, has seen more than 120 years of play – and it’s making new history today as one of the best public golf courses in the United States.
The course was built in 1895 as a nine-hole link exclusively for Army officers and members of the private Presidio Golf Club. During its early military years, it sometimes served double duty: in the Spanish American War, infantry trained and drilled here, and in 1906 survivors of the great San Francisco earthquake took refuge on the grounds. In 1910, the course was expanded to 18 holes and in 1921, it was redesigned, lengthened, and given a watering system. Still, through all its changes, it remained off limits to all but an elite few until it opened up its 145-acre, 6500 yard course for all to enjoy as the Presidio National Park Course and continues to rival some of the best courses in the country. The iconic Presidio Golf & Concordia Club offers members outstanding golf, dining, fitness and social activities – amid the stunning backdrop of the Presidio National Park Course.
