The dramatic roadway renovation of the Presidio Parkway has resulted in the opportunity to create a new 13-acre park, and the Presidio Trust is seeking community involvement in the planning and creation of this park.
The New Presidio Parklands Project, as it’s called, includes three interconnected sites. First, there’s a 10-acre designed landscape that will be created above the new roadway tunnels. Second, there’s a three-acre revitalized Crissy Field Center Youth Campus with a “learning landscape.” And there will also be a new plaza for the Presidio Visitor Center.
The Presidio Trust Gallery (1023 Montgomery Street) on the Presidio’s Main Post, opened a design lab at the end of January. In the lab, which is free and open to everybody seven days a week (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.), people can draw, debate, and otherwise engage with each other and the project.
You can find more information, as well as dates, times, and locations of public design workshops, at newpresidioparklands.org/participate/public-presentation.
