Presidio Tunnel Tops
Presidio Tunnel Tops, the long-awaited public park connecting the Main Post at the Presidio of San Francisco to Crissy Field and the Bayfront, will open on July 17.
More than three decades since early visions for the redevelopment of Doyle Drive, cutting through the heart of the Presidio, the 14-acre national park site known as the Tunnel Tops has a firm opening date for the public: Sunday, July 17.
The Presidio Tunnel Tops, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, is a brand-new outdoor space in the historic Presidio neighborhood, created by the designers of New York’s High Line.
“Seeing the return of natural landscapes is a very inspiring thing,” said Christine Lehnertz, president and CEO of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, which has worked to bring these and other projects in the Presidio to pass. “One piece at a time adds up to so much more.”
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.
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.
Officials on Thursday held a "groundmaking" ceremony for a park that will eventually connect the Presidio of San Francisco with Crissy Field.
San Francisco is breaking ground on a new park that will be built on top of the Presido Parkway near the Golden Gate Bridge.
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.
