A dynamic hub of youth engagement for the Golden Gate National Parks, the Center is a model program of the National Park Service, the Presidio Trust, and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. Crissy Field Center programs encourage new generations to become bold leaders for thriving parks, healthy communities, and a more environmentally just society. 

Crissy Field Center was established in 2001 to connect children, youth, families, schools, and community groups to Crissy Field through a variety of opportunities.   Since then, the Center has supported over 750,000 individuals in numerous ways.  In 2022, with the completion of Presidio Tunnel Tops just across the street from Crissy Field, the Center staff have moved back to the original home.

Staff from the Parks Conservancy, Presidio Trust, and National Park Service work together to offer unique experiences and foster a park culture where local youth, schools, and groups from historically underserved communities experience greater belonging, benefit from Park’s many rich opportunities, and transfer those benefits back to their community.
