Beautiful park. Visit on Sundays (maybe summer only?) for the Off the Grid picnic featuring food trucks and other food stall vendors at the Main Post Lawn. Bring a blanket to sit and relax with amazing views of the water and GG bridge.

This is a gorgeous place. Nice area for photos. We did stop to honor the people buried there, The locals were planning for a big event so we just drove around this area. Worth the time.

Beautiful buildings and a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Great reuse of this space. Nice to see history being saved and not torn down.

What a beautiful park and this monument, very beautiful indeed. Surrounded with lake and the tranquillity of the park, it makes perfect place to walk around, sit and enjoy the views of Presidio. Spotted some turtles in the lake :-)

Very interesting. we rode our bikes in here by accident... we had no idea what it was at first, but it was gorgeous. So green and peaceful. Weekend, so it was pretty empty.

Fantastic views of the bay and the bridge. Much to see in this location, and you're able to take a walk around down to the bay, as well as see what one of the cables looks like up close.
