We all love Golden Gate Park and Dolores Park, but did you know San Francisco has over 220 parks and open spaces? Curbed SF wants to bring fame and glory to some of the smaller, lesser-known parks, and we're doing so with our series Park Life. Each week we'll spotlight a different San Francisco park or open space, and bring you all the details you need to plan a visit.
Holly Park is one of the oldest parks in the city, built in the late 1800s as the neighborhood around Bernal Heights developed. After a recent renovation, the park now has lots of space for sports, kids, and dogs alike.
Where it's located: Holly Park is in Bernal Heights, with entrances at Highland Ave, Appleton Ave, Murray Street, and Bocana Street.
What it features: The park's got lots of open lawn space, and a tennis court, basketball court, baseball field, playground, and a gated picnic/BBQ area. There's also some pretty killer views from the top.
How to get there: The 24 bus stops at Bocana St, and the 67 drops off at Murray St. The 14 and 23 buses also get pretty close on Mission Street.
Dogs allowed?: Yes, but must be on leash.
Don't Miss: A few years ago a community effort spurred a $2 million makeover for the playground and picnic areas.
