  • I have seen a few parks in San Francisco in the last few days. I was ready to 'write this one off' but actually changed my mind after walking through. Manicured to almost be shrink wrapped! 1995  more »
  • This is not the greatest park, but you can get a lot of park things done and it is near a lot of stuff.  more »
  • Overall a safe, clean park. Nice play area for children. Great grass area for relaxing. Unfortunately, some dog owners feel it is okay to ignore the leash law which is clearly posted. Also noticed dog owners playing fetch across a group of people relaxing.
  • This is a nice place to walk your dog, meet people and enjoy fresh air. The food places nearby are pet friendly so taking a break for a bite to eat is no problem. The scenery is great - mornings are especially nice because it's less crowded. Weekends can get a little hectic but it's still a nuce place to go.
  • Nice, clean park. Nice play structures for children. Nice tennis courts. Well maintained. Besides kids running around in school uniforms & at times being loud, it was for most part, pretty peaceful with people doing their own thing, with or without dogs or children.
  • Super nice after the gazillion dollar remodel. Great for kids and adults alike. Just be sure to clean up after your dog and don't leave any litter behind.
  • This was a fun park we stumbled upon. Our 3-yr-old loved it. Many families and kids were there. Felt safe, and had pretty clean public restrooms. Fantastic climbing structures for kids - a creative design of large rocks for natural climbing.
