One of the city's most popular park located between the Mission District and the Castro/Noe Valley neighborhoods. On sunny afternoons people flock to the park to play, picnic, lounge, walk their dogs, and enjoy spectacular views of the city's skyline and beyond. Please remember to pack out your trash, use cans instead of glass, and don't leave cigarette butts behind. This is a Leave no Trace park and bins are located around the perimeter of the park.

Go to Castro, have lunch (I recommend the Starbelly), then had a few hours of doing nothing but laying on the grass, soaking up the sun. Or bring your dog and a frizbee. Or beer and your friends.

We've been here both on week days and weekends, however nothing beats the atmosphere on a sunny weekend. Bring a rug and a picnic and just watch the world go by. It's a great atmosphere and great for people watching.

I was there in a sunday, is a good day to stay with friends, grab a beer, sit in the grass and enjoy the sun. If you're lucky will have some band playing there.

Great park with wonderful views of San Francisco. We were there on a busy day, though, but the playground was lots of fun and there were a lot of people having picnics, throwing balls, and so forth. Only thing that ruined it for us was the strong marijuana smell - I don't mind if people smoke it, just not everywhere... More

I pop into the park a sunny spring saturday afternoon. It was difficult to find a place in the grass. More than 1000 young people enjoying life. It is worth to see it. A place of meeting for the gay comunity

This park has lots of grass for playing, letting your dog run around, picnicking, etc. The views of the city are great, too. A very laid-back, fun spot.

Been going to this part for 35 years -- first as a new mother -- playground activities -- and later as an aunt with young nieces/nephews. Lots of fund for kids. Now it is THE place to hang out for younger people -- so it is crowded -- but yet usually a happy place with a good vibe for the... More

Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners.
