Don't let the name fool you: the views from Buena Vista Park are not the best in the city: too many trees and plants stand in your way to make nice pictures. But it's a nice stroll through the park, though. Very quiet, fresh air, nice trees. But no views.

We went to Buena Vista Park. It is a nice green park with lots of trees. It is in the Haight-Ashbury and Buena Heights districts.

It is the oldest park in San Francisco and has been a park since 1867. It was first named Hill Park. It was renamed to its current name in 1894.

This journey is not for the unfit because it’s a long way to the top, and fairly steep inclines. That said, if you are able to reach the pinnacle the views over San Francisco on a clear day are amazing and worth the effort. If this park sounds too hard, I’d suggest Alamo Square instead, and this one overlooks the Painted Ladies so you see those and still get good views.

I happened to walk to this park while in San Fransisco this time.
The park has a lot of ways to climb up to the top.
The area on the top is a good place to meditate. The view is blocked because of the trees but you still get a good view. When you get down, you can go to the Height street where there are a lot of restaurants and shops.

Up on the hill, this park serves an upscale neighborhood but is available to explore for everyone. Come and enjoy the great views of downtown and the Bay, plus the great architecture all around the park.

Park has lots of paths leading up to the high points. You get lovely views across to the Bay area and Mount Sutro and the tower. Head off into Haight Ashbury for a coffee after

Niice city views around the hill, and a good climb up to the top. After reaching the top it is nice to enjoy the different angles of the city views by walking down the hill. You do need to have some fitness though, because it is a big climb (well, we are in San Francisco!). ;)

I arrived out-of-breath after the tough hike up (both streets and steps), but was greeted by amazing panoramic views of the city.

Nice views but can be a bit sketchy at certain times of day. Right on Haight Street in Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

An attractive greenery, it was lovely strolling around its well laid out trails in the daytime.

Fine views of the city are to be seen from the highest point and the slopes leading to same.
