As the capstone to the Presidio’s “post-to-park” transformation, the Presidio Tunnel Tops project is creating a world-class public space that connects Crissy Field and the Main Post, welcomes people of all backgrounds, and confirms the Presidio as a definitive 21st century national park.

Offering panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, the downtown skyline, and Crissy Field, the new parklands will immerse a broad cross-section of visitors from across our community and our nation in this extraordinary setting, providing a variety of ways to engage with the site and with each other through new opportunities to learn, to play, and to serve.

The Presidio Tunnel Tops project encompasses the following interconnected sites:

  • An 11-acre dramatic designed landscape to be created above the Presidio Parkway roadway tunnels
  • A 3-acre revitalized Crissy Field Center Youth Campus with a “Learning Landscape”
  • A gracious new plaza for the Presidio Visitor Center
