    Pleasant little park in the heart of SoMa and a few steps away from Market Street. Shame it's so shabby and host to so many homeless.

    The easy access to shopping in the Metreon to maybe pick up treats for your picnic. I like it to help me relax after a movie or for a quick break from a conference around the corner in Moscone.
  • Anita J.
    Live music on nice days when you can hold a picnic are cool. Soaking in the park can take your breath away. Parties here blow this native's mind & reminds me to fest prep for next month's celebration.

    Surprisingly serene spot in the middle of downtown. I love the sculptures, the slides, and the carousel.

    Urban oasis. Except during GDC. Or Oracle World. Or Dreamforce. Or WWDC.

    Great to come and relax a little, but not so great for families; you'll find 1 or 2 people smoking crack or pot.

    It's always refreshing to walk behind the waterfalls, especially when you need to erase the city sounds for a few minutes and just Zen out.

    A great green place in the middle of the concrete SoMa jungle. The area above the waterfalls is super peaceful. I like the group of people playing chess on the east edge.

    Yerba Buena was a settlement & original name of SF. The pueblo was founded in 1776 in the Spanish colonial Las Californias Province. Changed to SF, after 1846 Battle of YB & occupation by US troops

    Beautiful urban park! Greenery and flowing water! On a hot day, I swear it feels cooler here than in other parts of the financial district!

    You may see a homeless or two sunbathing on the grass, don't be alarmed.

    good view of the people who are seeming to populate the area in front of the Jewish Museum. interesting to see the once quiet and vacant architecturally remastered space with humans.
