Stay Informed About the presidio tunnel tops


The Partnership for the Presidio sustains the Presidio’s natural beauty, preserves its history, funds its future, and creates inspiring national park experiences for everyone to enjoy. Two federal agencies, the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service, manage the Presidio in collaboration with the non-profit Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. Together, the Partnership has transformed a former military post into one of the most visited places in the national park system.

Roving ranger group

The Partnership has worked together to create the Tunnel Tops since 2014 with each agency supporting key areas of the project. The Pre​sidio Trust  leads planning, design, and construction. The National Pa​rk Service leads interpretation, visitor services, and programming. The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy leads the philanthropic effort with generous donors, raising $98 million through a Capital Campaign. They’re also strategic partners in developing and delivering educational programs. All three organizations work together to engage diverse communities to design the Presidio Tunnel Tops and create experiences to welcome and support the public.

Design Partner

Following an international competition, the Partnership selected James Corner Field Operations to lead design of the Presidio Tunnel Tops. Field Operations is known for New York City’s much-acclaimed High Line, Staten Island’s Fresh Kills Park, Philadelphia’s Race Street Pier, London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Chicago’s Navy Pier, Seattle’s Central Waterfront, and Hong Kong’s Tsim ShaTsui Waterfront.
