There seems to be a park every few blocks in San Francisco, so people often favor the park closest to their apartments. We meet in parks all year to listen to music, to share food, to celebrate together. There are too many parks to list, and possibly to count, so these are a few of the standouts. I highly recommend coming to visit, so you can choose a favorite of your own.

Here are my six favorite parks and why they are worth visiting:

Visit the park with a panoramic view of downtown 
Enjoy the park with pugs gone wild 
Picnic by the painted ladies 
Visit the park with European flavor 
Have a beach bonfire 
Take a stroll through San Francisco’s largest park
