“BIke Ride with a world class view”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

My husband and I like to take the local BART train into the City on our bikes. We are older and the ride along the embarkadero (where we disembark with our bikes) all the way along Fisherman's wharf to Crissy Field is flat and easy. Buy a shrimp cocktail on Fisherman's wharf, or pick up some picnic foods elsewhere, bring it in a bike pack, and stop at the beautiful lawns at Crissy field and have a picnic. If you are up for it, continue to Golden Gate bridge- which you can ride across if you are up to it. (Be prepared for windy and crowded, but it is fun!)

“Nature tripping”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

This is a good spot for hanging out with nature like watching the waves, the surfers, cyclists or jiggers. Or you can be one of them too. A place to take your pets and kids for a nice family walk by the beach with the golden gate bridge as your back drop.

“Favorite Park in the City”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

Awesome public space with amazing views! We come here a lot to get away for a bit from the City. You can see nature (there's a small patch of wetland where you can spot egrets) and of course, beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. If you are into running/walking, you can do that here. There's a great sport's store call Sports Basement here where you can shop til you drop. :)

“Best view in SF found after so many years !!”
Reviewed December 13, 2011


I love to explore SF and check out new places..can never get bored of SF !! SO, it took me by surprise, when I discovered this place through yelp. It is indeed a gem and great view of golden gate, great beach (quite windy as around golden gate) and great kite flying area. There are couple of parking lots (last one in the end is mostly full) and also great clean restrooms in the same building as they have few free exhibits.

Also, on the way back, there is a starbucks (near yoda fountain at lucas films at presidio) . Perfect place to end the day long outing, before heading back to bay area.
