Presidio Storywalks

Through a partnership with the San Francisco Public Library, the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and the National Park Service, the Presidio is home to three “storywalks,” where pages of a children’s book are placed on sign panels along a trail so you can “seek, find and read” as you stroll.
