Who We Are...


To get to El Polín Springs, follow the directions below. The Presidio Visitor Center (in the Officers Club/Building 50) provides maps of the park, or you can click here for a map.

Where is the Presidio of San Francisco?
The Presidio of San Francisco is a National Historic Landmark District that is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It is located at the northernmost tip of San Francisco, California, at the southern end of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Directions to the park and public transit information are available at

Where in the park is the research site?
Parking at the site is limited. We recommend parking from the Presidio Visitor Center (Officer’s Club), which is located at the corner of Graham and Moraga. El Polín Springs is a short (5-15 minute) walk from the Presidio Visitor Center. The walk includes a stairway and a somewhat steep hill. There is limited parking at the El Polin Loop for visitors who would prefer to drive to the research site.
