Though it is located just a stone’s throw from the Golden Gate Bridge, many visitors are only recently discovering Fort Winfield Scott. This beautiful campus, once dedicated to defending San Francisco Bay, introduced Mission style architecture to the Presidio. Though the powerful coastal guns long ago left the Presidio, Fort Scott is now preparing to take on a new purpose of national significance.
Fort Scott offers amazing views and is situated near several trails and scenic overlooks. It is also the backdrop for popular volunteer stewardship activities that take place at Presidio Nursery and in the surrounding landscapes.
