We walked through here on our way to MOMA and I was enchanted by the MLK Waterfall Memorial. I had no idea it was there.

This park is easily accessed from Union Square and SOMA. Beautiful gardens with nice cascading fountains. Great place to let your toddler run or to sit and enjoy lunch. We often walk through after a Giants game on our way back to the hotel. Very...More

This park has really come into its own as it has matured. Lots of places to sit and eat your lunch. Beautiful waterfall. Come for the terrific outdoor performances.

Found this on my way from hotel to conference center. Fun to walk through. Cascading fountains were lovely. Each time I walked to meetings I saw different acts on the stage--from good music to tumbling. Clean, well-maintained.

YBG has changed dramatically in the last few years-It's only gotten better. I attended a wonderful theater production there- there is Music in the park- lovely trees and green section. Close to the MOMA, Fifth and Mission parking garage and the Bloomingdale shopping center.

Nice park area very close to Union Square. The Martin Luther King Memorial within the park is lovely, very serene. A nice place to take a little "time out" in the city centre

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
