Crowds pour in as Presidio Tunnel Tops park opens in San Francisco


The Golden Gate Bridge spans the scenic view from the Tunnel Tops on a beautiful opening day.

“It’s a 25 on a scale of 10. Just look at the parents chasing their kids,” said Chris Lehnertz, president and CEO of the Parks Conservancy, as she stood by, sipping coffee and observing and overhearing what she could.

Her main takeaways? “There are a lot of folks here who have come to the Presidio for the first time,” she said. And in the ultimate compliment: “I heard some kids say, ‘Can we come back next weekend?’”
