Walking back down the hill from Coit Tower, we passed a plaque on a wall, next to a pathway with stairs leading up...to where? We had to follow them, and were rewarded after a short climb to the top of a small fenced-in platform with...More
For those of you actually expecting a park, you will be sorely disappointed. This is a tiny landing that fits maybe 7 people at the most. It is at the top of a staircase that is in between residential homes. The entrance is kind of...More
This feels like you are walking through a private staircase in a back yard. There is a sign identifying the steps on the Street. It is well worth the trek up. There is a tiny little patio with two stone benches. I stood on the...More
I wanted to visit this "park" after reading about it, so I dragged my family with me. I thought it was great; my teenage children and husband didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did. After climbing many steps, we reached the tiny little...More
This place is The BOMB!!! I was so looking forward to finding it and checking it out, and it was actually even better than I thought!

View is amazing. Surrounded by beautiful houses. You can see golden gate bridge and Alcatraz. Seats just enough for two. We've been here for about half hour with no other tourists coming. Absolute hidden gem!
Nice views, but nothing spectacular. I would not detour to climb the steps up to this park, when you have Pioneer Park two blocks away, and Telegraph Hill (10 minute walk) nearby.

The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style.
Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
