Presidio Coastal Trail (Completed Spring 2012)

Merchant Marine Cemetery Vista Memorial

The Merchant Marine Cemetery Vista Memorial is now mostly completed. The memorial was designed by Michael Lamb, landscape architect with the Presidio Trust. It creates a reflective space overlooking the restored sand dunes, which sit on top of the historic site of the Merchant Marine Cemetary. See below for photos of the construction process.

Step One: Construct framing for the concrete

Step Two: Pour the concrete with the beam brackets, steel posts, and memorial pad
