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...More

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.

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...More

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...More

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.

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...More

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!

Nice views, but nothing spectacular. I would not detour to climb the steps up to this park, when you have Pioneer Park two blocks away, and Telegraph Hill (10 minute walk) nearby. So, the park is a small park on Grant (west side of the...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
