as the United States entered World War I, the brick stables once housed
enough horses to support an entire cavalry company. Later, the buildings were
adapted for other uses including a K-9 Corps facility and a veterinary
hospital. Today, one stable houses the U.S. Park Police mounted patrol and
another is home to the park archive. The beloved Presidio Pet Cemetery is
immediate environment of the stables is undergoing a vast improvement as a
result of the Doyle Drive replacement project. The stables also sit along one
of the primary gateways to Crissy Field, one of the most recognizable
spaces on the West Coast and the most visited Presidio district.
Crissy Field’s beaches, trails, and Golden Gate Bridge views draw millions each
year. The historic hangars and warehouse at its west end, the legacy of the
site’s aviation history, now house popular recreational destinations including
a rock-climbing gym, swim school, and more. The stables are near the Golden Gate Bridge Visitor Center, which was being revitalized
in time for the the celebration of the icon’s 75th anniversary.
