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.

We walked all the way to Billy Goat Hill Park from Downtown (near Union Square) just to swing on the rope swing, take in the views and snap some photos. You can imagine after our extremely long walk how disappointed we were to see that...More

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
