    Too many dogs here... I like dogs, but little bit scary some of the kinds. That is why I've been there so rarely... Not feeling comfortable, but the views are gorges

    Get your coffee or blueberry muffin in my case. And sit on the top. The view is great.

    This place is where those outdoor stock photos of delightfully well-dressed families and their dog come from.

    The park ranger does a terrible job of letting you know that he sprayed roundup poison on the long grass. Don't let your dog eat it.

    Some of my favorite views of the city from the stairs looking South, looking North towards the bay at Pierce & Jackson, and looking SE through the park from the top of the park at Jackson & Scott.

    Save me a seat on the bench by the steps on the North side looking down Pierce Street. It's one of my favorite places.

    Tip re: "loose dogs" posted by someone uneducated re: SF. This is one of SF's best dog parks; but if your dog isn't good w/voice control or tends to misbehave, probably best not the place to come.

    See the chips in the southside stairs? That's where Ryan O'Neal and Barbra Streisand drove their Bug in "What's Up, Doc?"
