Saving and Sharing an American Landmark
The Presidio Trust is an innovative federal agency created to save the Presidio and transform it into a new kind of national park.
Spanning 1,500 acres in a spectacular setting at the Golden Gate, the Presidio now operates largely without taxpayer support, is home to a large community of residents and commercial tenants, and offers unique recreation, hospitality, and educational opportunities to people throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and the world. Established in 1996 through the ground-breaking and bipartisan Presidio Trust Act, the agency is managed by a seven member board of directors.
The Presidio Trust operates with a partnership approach that brings together individuals and organizations across sectors to generate public benefit. Our key partners are the National Park Service and the non-profit Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
