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.
Nestled along Mission Bay, Agua Vista Park is a landscaped oasis along the waterfront. It offers some killer views of the ship repairs happening nearby, and a sunny spot to have a seat. Even though the construction in Mission Bay is new, the park has been around since the 1970s. Owned and managed by the Port, it's one of the few green spaces in the area.
Where it's located: The park is along the waterfront on Terry Francois Blvd, between 16th and Mariposa Streets.
What it features: Since it's on the water, the best part of this spot is getting an up-close and personal view of the the ship repair operations happening nearby. It's also got benches and picnic tables, plus there's a public fishing pier.
How to get there: Take the T line to Mariposa and Third Streets, and walk a block towards the water. Or take the 22 bus to 18th and Third Streets, and walk the extra block.
Dogs allowed?: Yes, but must be on leash.
Don't Miss: It's conveniently right next to Mission Rock Cafe and The Ramp for some post-park drinks.Read More
