    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.
