Beautify Historic Gardens
Thursday, May 15: Revitalizing Historic Gardens
in the Funston Neighborhood
The Presidio was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962,
forever protecting the park's cultural landscape as it was first conceived by
the U.S. Army. The Army adhered to creating a picturesque aesthetic including
winding, tree-lined boulevards, forested ridges, and formally landscaped
entrances. Today, the Funston Neighborhood still stands as the earliest
Army-era homes built within the Presidio. We'll be leading our volunteers on
sprucing up historic gardens around these federally protected architectural
gems. Meet at 10 am at the Inspiration Point Overlook. Rain or shine. Ages 10 and up.
