Presidio Park has a grim history that shows a complete and utter disrespect for the Kumeyaay nation whom originally called this area home. We have written about the history of Presidio Park on this page which I encourage everyone to read.
If you choose to visit this area please come with the utmost respect. There are many beautiful hiking trails to take. I do not advise to hike them alone though as the homeless population does go through here. Even though most are harmless and mind their own business, you still never know.
