Driving Directions
Traffic Advisory

The Doyle Drive/Presidio Parkway Construction Project affects several streets near the Palace of Fine Arts. Below are new recommended driving routes and information on free nearby parking.

From the North Bay to Theatre Parking

Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and follow signs indicating Downtown San Francisco. Stay to the left and take the Marina exit; you’ll see the sign overhead. While you might be tempted to take a right at the first stop light (Lyon Street) and pull directly into the Palace of Fine Arts, pass the Lyon Street entrance and proceed straight on Marina Boulevard. Then:

  1. Right on Baker Street
  2. Left on Jefferson Street
  3. Left on Broderick Street
  4. Left on Marina Boulevard, then immediately move into the right lane
  5. Either:
    1. Turn right on Yacht Road and follow signs for Palace of Fine Arts parking (lot is next to the St. Francis Yacht Club).
    2. Or continue on Marina onto Mason Street. The alternate parking lot will be on your left (see map). Please note that there is a walkway from this lot to the back of the main Theatre lot.

NOTE: Avoid bearing left on Marina Boulevard; that stretch of Marina Boulevard turns into an onramp for Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge. If you inadvertently end up on the approach to the Bridge, don’t worry; you’ll have a chance to exit to the right just before the toll plaza. You can then make your way back to the Palace of Fine Arts through the Presidio or retry the directions from above.
