This is a great park for walking (humans and dogs alike), enjoying the view of San Francisco, and looking out onto the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Park near the Warming Hut cafe/bookstore (free parking!) and walk up to Golden Gate. It's a great picnic spot. You can also bring your bicycle and ride along the bay. It is cold and breezy here, even during the summer so be sure to wear layers.

This is one beautiful park right in SF at the foot of the GG Bridge. Just driving through the complex is fun. There is nice landscaping everywhere, cool historic buildings, and lots of green space. A quiet place to visit, unless of course the Telegraph Hill parrots happen to be hanging out there:-) The can be pretty noisy but fun nonetheless.

Don't miss a trip to Presidio. The park is tucked away in the middle of San Francisco. Take the time to spend a few hours here! It is an old military base rich in history and redefined by modern times.

I just love this park. It used to be a military base and is filled with history and military stile architecture. You can easily imagine civil war era solders parading around . The nature and the views of the bay are amazing too!
