While we may be living through a pandemic, there’s really no better time to celebrate love. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy time with your sweetie this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got five great ways to let love bloom in the park.

1. Explore Lovers’ Lane

So-called for connecting love-struck soldiers with their sweethearts in town, the Presidio’s oldest footpath slopes between the stately Presidio Gate and the Main Post. Come take a walk with your love and be a part of history.

2. The Presidio is for (Art) Lovers

Andy Goldsworthy's Wood Line

While on Lovers’ Lane, take a peek into the nearby eucalyptus grove and you’ll find Wood Line, an iconic work by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. It explores a great love of his – the Presidio’s man-made forest.

The Presidio has eight scenic outlooks – why not take them all in with your honey? One of our favorites is Inspiration Point, where you can look out over the Presidio and – on a clear day – see the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and San Francisco’s skyline.
