The Presidio Trust, working with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service, has invited five renowned design firms to develop conceptual design and programming for 10 acres of new parkland that will be created in the Presidio atop a dramatic bluff with panoramic Golden Gate views. The design opportunity came about as the result of the demolition of the 75-year-old freeway leading to the Golden Gate Bridge, which is being replaced by the Presidio Parkway, a new at-grade tunnel-covered roadway that will connect the two most expansive public spaces in the Presidio: the historic Main Post and the bay front at Crissy Field.
