    We love to sit in the shade here during the day, it's a friendly park, good for groups, families, or just to relax on your own.

    Bring your drink, your snacks and great attitude cause this is a great place to hang out and people watch- pets are welcome with responsible owners...

    Should you want to see one of the most crowded but beautiful areas of the city. Probably only park w/o a radiant view hovering above the city around it, it's actually a low-set 1, but views nearby.

    Great park for picnicking or just hanging out in general. Went to a movie night here and while crowded, it was still a great time.

    The heart of North Beach, in the shadow of Sts. Peter and Paul Church. A great place to hang out, sip a coffee, and people watch. There are also regular art shows here.

    The vibe, the sun, the bells ringing from the church. Amazing place to chill and hang

    Get a soda cup from Tony's Slice House pour your beer in it for under cover drinking - or just do it openly, the worst that'll happen is a cop telling you to pour it out.

    The San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation hosts a couple movies in the park over the summer. Bring your blanket and bottle of wine!

    Little bit of everything, right in the heart of North Beach! Grab some food and drinks, then make friends with some of the other people out here...

    Never noticed a playground in the north-west corner until a visit with a toddler. More old-school than most: no plastic. Four baby swings.

    Great place to have a bottle of wine. But beware of people tossing balls, they usually don't aim well.

    When it's not too cold or dark, there's usually a group of dog owners who hang out while the pups play. Ramona the Love Terrier is a regular.

    The park is not a square. The statue is not of Washington. I guess Jefferson Trapezoid Park wasn't a good name?
