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.
Allyne Park, right next to the Octagon House, can turn into one of Cow Hollow’s busiest spots. With lots of sun and a pretty garden, it’s easy to see why. A favorite of dog owners and parents with strollers, it offers a sweet spot of green in an otherwise residential and busy shopping area.
Where it's located: The park is at the southeast corner of Green and Gough Streets.
What it features: The park is has a grassy clearing, usually full of kids playing, dogs romping, or people sunbathing. There’s also benches and a landscaped garden, and those are usually occupied by people with strollers.
How to get there: The park is a half a block from the 41 Union and 45 Stockton buses, and a few blocks from the 47 and 49 Van Ness buses.
Dogs allowed?: Yes, and many people let their dogs romp free, but signs say they must stay on leash.
Don't Miss: Blue Frog Market across the street is a tasty (but pricey) spot to grab some snacks.
