Historical/Interpretive Information/Exhibits, Scenic View/Photo Spot

The pet cemetery is the final resting place for hundreds of loyal animal friends from families stationed at the Presidio. The headstones are typically similar to those found in military cemeteries and sometimes reflect the life and times of the animal friends' military lifestyles including place of origin, their family names and owners' ranks, which include majors, colonels and generals.

NOTE: The pet cemetery can only be viewed from McDowell Avenue during current construction of the Presidio Parkway.
