Presidio Slow Streets

What are Presidio Slow Streets?

Parks are vital to our health and well-being. The Presidio Trust implemented the Presidio Slow Streets program in 2020 to provide additional space for recreation during the COVID pandemic and to create more opportunities for visitors to enjoy the Presidio. Throughout the program, we’ve listened to the community, collected u​sage data, and adapted the roadways to current needs.

Presidio Slow Streets currently include two types of roadways:

  • Recreation Zone (Red) – Vehicles are not permitted.
  • Slow Street Zone (Yellow) – Vehicle access is limited to residents, tenants, deliveries, and emergency vehicles.

Project Status

We received great feedback in November about our Presidio Slow Streets program, and as we make decisions, we want more of your input. A summary of what we learned from data collection and the previous round of feedback from November can be found here.

In response to the feedback and data we’ve collected, the Presidio Trust is evaluating ideas to make the Presidio Slow Streets network permanent. There are three ways to provide input on our ideas:

  • Saturday, March 26, 10 am to 2 pm visit our table at the Arguello Gate.
  • Tuesday, March 29, visit our table at Immigrant Point on Washington Boulevard from about 12 to 2 pm and at Presidio Wall Playground on West Pacific Avenue from about 2 to 4 pm.
  • You can also comment on improvement ideas online from March 25 through April 10 with this link:
    We’ll use the information from this feedback to develop a preferred design and in summer 2022, we’ll make final decisions on the Presidio Slow Streets program.
