The top of the hill, once a quarry, afford great views of San Francisco. There is a trail that goes further east to Walter Hass Park which also has great panoramic view to the east. Heels not recommended.

We were told by a person who lived in the neighborhood, "One man puts it up, and another neighbor takes it down. We were just there at the wrong time, wait a couple weeks and it will be back up again." Enough said!

My toddler loves hiking up this hill and I love the views! There's a great rope swing for a little more fun too. The hill has wonderful stairs that make the walk uphill easy for short legs as well as longer ones.

This is a small park, not much worth seeing. There are some nice views of the city from the park, that's about it.

This park is in a nice little neighborhood. Someone has created a swing by tying a seat to the tree limbs. It's a long swing so the sensation of flying out over the bluff is really cool and makes for some great photos. I think...More

This is definitely a off the beaten path place to visit where you will probably find a younger crowd of people. There is no specific address so to find it you'll either have to ask a local living near Beacon or Diamond Street or put...More

It comes and goes based on the neighborhoods sentiments. Don't think it's there now.
