  • Currently under extensive renovation... This is one of the city"s biggest tourest stops and its been unusable for months now with no end in site for being reopened
  • Currently under construction/renovation. Best views of painted ladies and skyline temporarily unavailable.
  • It's a great place to walk, see the city, picnic, play tennis, take your kids to the playground and your dog's to play too.
  • Great place for a picnic and a nice view of the Painted Ladies.
  • Closed for renovations at the moment, but (when it's open) this park is a condensed version of everything wonderful about an SF park in my opinion. Soft grass, great variety of venerable trees, iconic view of the city and painted ladies (Victorian houses), dog play area, children's playground, tennis court, wifi, great local and tourist people-watching, proximity to great food and ice cream...Although it's a hill, so if you're looking for big, open, flat, grassy spaces, I'd try the panhandle.
