This historic park was the location of one of the first settlements in San Diego, back in 1769. It was the base of Mexico's military power in California. Different areas of the park have their own significance, all for getting hitched. For example, Inspiration Point is a popular wedding venue, as is Palm Canyon. People also get married close to The Padre Cross, which was erected in 1913 by the Order of Panama and made from the ruins of the Presidio. The most popular of these spots is The Arbor. Needless to say, all of the park is perfectly landscaped and a great place for a stroll. It looks over Old Town, so the views are nice. At the park is the Junipero Serra Museum, containing some of the collection of the San Diego History Center.

Presidio Park Reviews & Ratings

  • One if the most historically important places in California. Was better before the exhibit remodel in 2019 but still wonderful. Don't miss the peaceful Park behind the fort tower.

  • One of the few places to truly feel like you are out of the city and in nature. Lots of hiking paths, fairly clean, and not to large of a homeless population. I would say to be careful closer to nighttime especially as a female as there are homeless people sometimes on the hiking paths who are questionable you run into but not often.

  • 5 stars because I can fully experience the great wide open green spaces and the Serra Museum. If you are in a wheelchair......that's another story. The Serra Museum, picnic tables and shady areas are not wheelchair friendly. The museum was built on the top of a hill and it's a steep climb from the big parking lot, with NO ramp whatsoever. If you or an acquaintance struggle with steps, which there are plenty, then this might be a challenge. Great views, green areas and hilly dirt paths for walking or running. History abounds in this area, Old Town is a history geeks fun place.

  • What a beautiful place to visit! A beautiful and wide open park with plenty of tables and chairs and parking. It's a great place for a picnic and people watching. Surrounding the park are shops and places for food and drinks, salons, ATMs, and even the Cosmopolitan hotel, which is a great Western themed place. The best part that I experienced was after dark, around 11p, all kinds of bunnies come out and wander around! I'll bring lettuce next visit!

  • Great place to walk on the trails. Nice historical sites and fun for the whole family.
