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.​
