Fame aside, the abundant lawns, flowerbeds and willows have made this park a well-loved play space for generations. Youngsters flock to the dual-level playground, while the off-leash area is popular with dogs (and dog parents). Look for the unusual Shoe Garden, where castoff high heels and ski boots are re purposed as landscape art. Full tennis court, walking trails and picnic area.

- Painted ladies and breathtaking view of Russian Hill / Downtown from the east side. Another beautiful view and dog park of the west - more fog though.
- In front of the row of Victorian “Painted Ladies” houses (made famous by the Full House opening sequence), but on nice days you can spy the ocean and the Bay from here.
- The Shoe Garden is a little-known locals’ secret. Make your way to the top of the park and look for a garden shed to find dozens of shoes with flowers or grass growing in them. #vday
