Russian Hill's Hyde & Vallejo Mini Park

New, 3 comments

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.

Located on the west side of Hyde and tucked in between two residential buildings, this spot is one of many mini-parks around Russian Hill. But at less than 30ft wide, it is basically the definition of mini.

Where it's located: Entrance on west side of Hyde Street, between Green and Vallejo streets.

What it features: This tiny spot has a zig-zag concrete path that leads downhill to a small clearing with trees, plantings, and benches.

How to get there: Take the Powell-Hyde cable car to Hyde & Vallejo, or the 19 bus to Polk & Vallejo and walk.

Dogs allowed?: Yes, but must be on a leash. It’s a tiny spot without a lot of grass, so it may not be your dog’s favorite.

Don't Miss: There used to be a teepee play structure when you first walked into the park, so some people still refer to the spot as 'Teepee Park'
