Presidio Slow Streets

​​​​​​​​​​​Safe space for walking, running, and biking
24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Parks are vital to our health and well-being, especially in stressful times. During the coronavirus pandemic, the Presidio remains open for exercise and outdoor activities.

In order to create more space for ever​yone to walk, run, and bike safely in the park, ​​we’re hosting Presidio Slow Street​​s, a companion to the City’s effort.

Through the Presidio Trust's Emergency Order, ​select streets in the park will be closed so visitors can recreate while maintaining the required safe physical distance of six feet.

Presidio Slow Streets include two types of road closures:

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

West Pacific Avenue Becomes a “Slow Street”

Since June 2020​, West Pacific Avenue from Arguello Boulevard to Presidio Boulevard was closed to all but emergency vehicles to create more space to walk, run, and bike safely during shelter in place.

Beginning Monday, June 28, West Pacific Avenue becomes a Slow Street to allow access to limited parking near the Presidio Wall ball field and Lovers’ Lane trailhead. The roadway is fully closed to vehicles between the ballfield and Lovers’ Lane in order to maintain some exclusive walking and biking space on the corridor.

While this change is temporary, the final road configuration will be determined after further study, evaluation, and outreach.

Note that we may adjust the street closures throughout the month – check the website before your visit.
