Hilly wooded area next to San Diego downtown

Went on a run with a stroller with my grandson. Very nice wooded area with grass and historic buildings on top of a hill. There are not continuous sidewalks so It is hard to... read more

I'd forgotten how beautiful it is up here. We haven't driven up that hill in years, and I don't think I've ever really driven all the way around (I didn't even realize that there's a road that leads out the back way, once you hit the summit!) We're always looking for new places to take the mongrels, and since every... More

Went on a run with a stroller with my grandson. Very nice wooded area with grass and historic buildings on top of a hill. There are not continuous sidewalks so It is hard to navigate with stroller. I could not find a playground for children. It has some trails to walk off the road which would be nice to explore.... More

Located just above Old Town sits Predio Park with its picturesque mission and views. A large rolling park to wander through is an easy walk up from Old Town.

A peaceful place just off major freeways, and above Old Town. We like to stop here after a long drive to San Diego to unwind and rest a bit. I have never seen it crowded. Some great views of the harbor and coastline. Also a few interesting historical markers to read. Access just up the hill on the north end... More

If you are in San Diego and you like history no doubt you'll be in Old Town at some point. While there, don't miss going up the hill to the Presidio nearby. See the displays of the original Spanish settlement and the various historical plaques erected around the area. Beside that, it is a lovely outdoor scenic park for a... More

Nice views, historical area. Trails are nice off Taylor Street, leading up to the Serra Museum, but there is evidence / debris along the trails.

I walked up to Presidio Park from nearby Old Town San Diego. There’s a bit of elevation to climb, but anyone in average physical shape should be able to accomplish this without excessive heart rate. The park is very nice, and was not crowded at all when I strolled through. There is lots of green area, both shaded and open.... More

Unlike the crowded Balboa Park, we found Presidio Park pretty much deserted on a Sunday afternoon; which makes it an ideal destination for all travellers like me who enjoy their quiet meditative walks. Although no historic structures remain of the Royal Presidio of San Diego, an abandoned 18th Century fort, the view on the valley is unparalleled and one can... More

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.
