From our green parks and beautiful beaches to the vast wilderness beyond the bridge, the City offers fresh air and inspiration at every turn.
There is no city like San Francisco for the outdoors. Our Tunnel Tops in the Presidio, designed by renowned landscape architect James Corner, is a perfect example of how we integrate urban and natural spaces. So does Salesforce Park in the heart of downtown. This popular open space is blocks long and many stories off the ground. And don't forget about Golden Gate Park, the 1,000-plus acre urban oasis that was once deemed impossible to create.
From hilltop parks and shaded canyons to craggy cliffs and quiet meadows, San Francisco's natural beauty is one of the top reasons why so many leave their heart in San Francisco.
