Staircase Park!
Sep 2018 • Couples
Jack Early Park is basically a steep dead end staircase running through the trees. The stair terminates at a viewpoint that looks across San Francisco Bay towards Alcatraz Island! The view from the top of the staircase is pretty decent and it’s worth a quick look if you are passing, but don’t make a special trip to visit!

What a find! Well-hidden "park" with amazing views
Apr 2017 • Family
Walking back down the hill from Coit Tower, we passed a plaque on a wall, next to a pathway with stairs leading up...to where? We had to follow them, and were rewarded after a short climb to the top of a small fenced-in platform with expansive views in nearly all directions, backed by a couple of huge houses even more impressive views.

This tiny spot a great little hidden gem on Telegraph Hill, and worth your time to seek it out and enjoy the views.

Jack early lookout

This was easy to find and nice and secluded. Nice spot for a romantic kiss and some photos. Isn't really a park though it's more of a lookout.

Quiet Little Piece of Heaven

For those of you actually expecting a park, you will be sorely disappointed. This is a tiny landing that fits maybe 7 people at the most. It is at the top of a staircase that is in between residential homes. The entrance is kind of hidden so you could very well miss it if you are not paying attention. The view from the top is a treat. You can see Alcatraz island on one side and the Golden Gate Bridge on the other. There is a small bench at the top to sit and enjoy nature and the view. I would not recommend the walk up the stairs for anyone with bad knees.

Secret Steps to Amazing View
Oct 2016 • Couples
This feels like you are walking through a private staircase in a back yard. There is a sign identifying the steps on the Street. It is well worth the trek up. There is a tiny little patio with two stone benches. I stood on the bench seat for a better view over some foliage. You can see the Bay Bridge all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. Great picnic private spot!

Interesting!

I felt like I was walking up a private staircase surrounded by foliage galore! The views are stunning of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. It's located in Telegraph Hill and can easily be missed.

Very Unusual Little Spot
Feb 2016
I wanted to visit this "park" after reading about it, so I dragged my family with me. I thought it was great; my teenage children and husband didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did. After climbing many steps, we reached the tiny little concrete patio "park" with 2 little benches. There was a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge and everything in between. The view is slightly obstructed by homes which surround this tiny park. If we had planned ahead, it would have been a great spot for a picnic! We were lucky to have it all to ourselves during our visit.

San Francisco's Best Kept Secret!!!
May 2015 • Friends
This place is The BOMB!!! I was so looking forward to finding it and checking it out, and it was actually even better than I thought!

This is the city's smaller park and it is located in the Russian Hills on Grant Avenue, beween Chestnut and Francisco. It's actually hard to miss, so if you're looking for it, you''ll definitely find it!

It was built in 1962 by Jack Early, a neighborhood resident. The tiny platform overlooks the Warf, Alcatraz and the bay. There are windy steps that lead you up to the vista point that offers a gorgeous and uninhibited view of the surroundings.

This spot is romantic and beautiful and tucked away above the city. I loved it there and hope you will too!

Great view no one else here!
View is amazing. Surrounded by beautiful houses. You can see golden gate bridge and Alcatraz. Seats just enough for two. We've been here for about half hour with no other tourists coming. Absolute hidden gem!
