Presidio Tunnel Tops Project – Site Tour
Fri, April 7, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM PDT
Registration is required.
Over the past two decades the Presidio has been transformed from a U.S. Army post to a national park in the heart of a busting urban area. Since 1994, major improvements have made the park a welcoming place where millions of people experience history, recreation, learning, and the great outdoors. The biggest improvement is yet to come – the Presidio Tunnel Tops Project.
Through this effort, the elevated highway that cut through the Presidio for seven decades on its path to the Golden Gate Bridge has been replaced with an at-grade roadway hidden from public view by discrete tunnels.
This creates a singular opportunity to establish a magnificent 14-acre landscape on top of the tunnels. Once completed, visitors will enjoy “San Francisco’s Great Escape” – a place with views, nature, and play unlike anything else in the city.

The tour is approximately 45 minutes to one hour. Registration is required. Walking up to a quarter-mile is required. Tours with fewer than six participants may be cancelled 24-hours prior to start time. Registrants will be notified via email of any cancellations.
