Presidio Parklands“The New Presidio Parklands Project has garnered the interest and excitement of some of the world’s most talented and creative design teams,” said Craig Middleton, Presidio Trust Executive Director. “James Corner’s record of accomplishment, deep appreciation for the site, and commitment to engaging the community makes his team an ideal partner for this magnificent opportunity.”
Presidio ParklandsThe new parklands will be created by replacing Doyle Drive, an elevated highway, with an at-grade roadway covered by tunnels. The thirteen acres of new land above the freeway will reconnect two Presidio destinations, the historic Main Post and Crissy Field. Once completed in 2018, the new landscape will offer visitors an unparalleled experience of the Golden Gate.
