Officials on Thursday held a "groundmaking" ceremony for a park that will eventually connect the Presidio of San Francisco with Crissy Field.
Dramatic views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco Bay, the Presidio, and the San Francisco skyline are coming to Golden Gate National Recreation Area with the addition of 14 acres of new parkland atop highway tunnels.
The maxim “good things come to those who wait” is being put to the test in the Presidio — where work formally begins Thursday on a 14-acre, sloping park intended to connect the atmospheric Main Post with ever-popular Crissy Field.
If you’ve ever visited San Francisco and strolled the Presidio—a former military base turned national recreational area—you’ve experienced the magic of this outdoor oasis.
Today marks a historic moment for The Presidio Trust, the National Park Service, and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, as the Presidio Tunnel Tops project was formally launched this morning with a “groundmaking” ceremony to kick off the construction phase of this highly anticipated phase of the development of The Presidio.
