The Presidio Trust is a distinctive federal agency created by Congress to save an historic American place and transform it to serve a new national purpose. View the Presidio Trust Act >>
Over the past fifteen years the Presidio Trust has rehabilitated more than 300 historic buildings for new uses, removed Army landfills, restored acres of natural areas, revitalized the century-old forest, and updated the park’s infrastructure. Today, 8,000 people live, work, or attend school in the park, preserving its character as a community. Thousands visit to explore history and culture, as well as enjoy the outdoors. New trails and bikeways have made the Presidio a premier recreational destination.
The Presidio’s transformation into a national park site is one of the most interesting and remarkable base realignments in the country – one that is bringing together funding and expertise from government, the private and non-profit sectors, and the philanthropic community. With the support of partners and the community, the Presidio Trust is helping to build a public destination that is of enduring value to the nation.
