Presidio Park


Forty-nine lush green acres of rolling lawns and towering but gently whispering trees make up Presidio Park, which is above San Diego's Old Town on one side, Mission Valley on another, and adjacent to Mission Hills. This is a popular picnicking park and is also ideal for walkers because it is laced with trails, including the mile-long Presidio Park historical trail. Among the memorials and landmarks you'll find the Serra Museum, which calls itself the "Plymouth Rock of the West." The Mission-style building was constructed in 1929 to mark the site where Father Junipero Serra and Captain Gaspar de Portola established the first mission in California. The museum now houses artifacts that begin with the time of the Kumayaay Indians, then to the establishment of the first Spanish mission in 1769, followed by the Mexican annexation in 1821, and finally the takeover by the U.S. in 1846 and subsequent happenings through World War II. Park rangers offer hosted guided tours of the park. Besides the Serra Museum, other points of interest include the garrison at Fort Point, an original log cabin, the San Francisco National Military Cemetery, and free-standing cannons.
