We loved the great view but we came on a Wednesday and the museum was closed so there was not much to do. The area around the Presidio is Shaded and has Picnic tables. It looks like a great place to have a picnic.

We had reviews here which sounded as if this was a great place to visit. Actually, not much! It's okay for an outing in the area, but otherwise, nothing to get very excited about.

Like the other reviewer said, nothing here for very young children. It is great though for elementary students studying California history. They can see the statue of Father Serra, the outline of the old presidio, and the Serra Museum. There is a beautiful arbor that is great for parties. You can visit both the park and Old Town in one... More

This is the park that resides on the bluff overlooking Old Town. It's easy to miss the entrance, since it's a innocuous T-intersection just north of Old Town. However, if you want to learn about early San Diego, it should not be missed. This is the site of the original Spanish military camps and fort, and the remains of the... More

It is really pretty surroundings. We went up there to take photos when I was in a friends wedding. Another friend also went up there and had pictures taken of him & his daughter.

This review is for the park itself. TripAdvisor has another listing for the Serra Museum in the park, and I have reviewed that separately. This historic park is on the site at which Father Junipero Serra founded the Mission San Diego de Alcala, the first mission in Alta California (now U.S. California, as opposed to Baja California). The park is... More
