This gem of a park is part of why San Francisco is such an amazing city. A former nuclear missile base is now the region's most scenic wild area, with miles of trails for hikers, horses and bikes. Short, steep hills give breathtaking vistas of the City by the Bay, and old Army gun bunkers make great picnic spots! You might even see a bobcat or a coyote, and its only a 20 minute drive from downtown SF! Hard to beat in my book...

When I first moved to the Bay Area, this park was one of my first adventures. I made my way through the city, across the Golden Gate Bridge and into the park, where I proceeded to turn into a little kid as I chased the waves at Kirby Cove. From here, SFers and tourists alike can appreciate the beauty of the city with sweeping views of the Bay. Stop to watch the sunset behind the bridge on your way out!

The largest and best known park in San Francisco is the 1,017 acre (411 ha) Golden Gate Park. Its history goes back to 1870 when the site was an area of wild sand dunes. At the time, the area, known as 'outside lands', was well outside the city's developed limits.
