Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I walk or bike to Fort Point?

A: Yes, you can either follow Marina Boulevard along the shoreline and through Crissy Field, or follow the main road and the Presidio Promenade along Lincoln Boulevard, and take Long Avenue down to the fort.

A: The fort has many programs and exhibits available when it's open to the public. You can catch a tour of the fort or attend a cannon loading demonstration.
