Presidio Tunnel Tops

Francisco Park isn’t the only new public green space coming to San Francisco. The Presidio Tunnel Tops park will bridge the Presidio with Crissy Field. It will be a new 14-acre site with scenic overlooks, paths and gardens, a plaza with food and other services, picnic area, and a place for children to explore nature.

The project is being led by Lynne Benioff and Mark Buell. Tunnel Tops was designed by James Corner Field Operations, the urban design firm behind New York City’s celebrated High Line elevated park and redesigning Chicago’s famous Navy Pier. James Corner was selected for the project in 2014 after an international design competition.

The designs are scheduled to be unveiled Thursday, Nov. 7 in the Presidio.
