  • ...,but a bit third-world-like. The park is just beyond the dirt mound that used to be Candlestick Park stadium. The bay views from park are great. Parking is easy, and there are even picnic tables. T...  more »

  • Wonderful place for history. Usually on the cool side so dress with that in mind. We found taking our lunch and hanging out was the best.

  • No surprise—it can get very windy here. But it can get very beautiful too! A fine place for a stroll or a family cookout. I've never seen it too crowded.
  • This is a clean, really laid-back park with multiple trails, fishing dock, picnic tables, and fire pits for those outdoor gatherings. Due to its location, this place is not crowded because it’s right next to Bayview Hunter’s Point projects, but I find it pleasantly quiet and safe (as long as my big dog is with me). There are park rangers patrolling the area, so watch out if your dog is off leash. Depending on the weather, you might catch a fleet of wind surfers, a kayaker or paddle-boarder. This is the place where middle-class local folks hang out.
  • Pleasant views of the San Francisco Bay. Lots of space for BBQs. Mostly hikers and runners. Hard to consider it a 'hidden gem', but this park has way more land then people-- even on gorgeous days!
  • Interesting little park with exercise stations along the path. Very windy, but there are sheltered picnic tables. Some of the shelters have "interesting" graffiti.
  • Nice Park, good for bbq. A Lot of squirels
