“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The beautiful parts of this park are:

1) views, views, and more views
2) near two beautiful mosaic staircases (16th and Kirkham and the more famous 16th and Moraga stairway)
3) secluded
4) parking nearby

It is probably my favorite park in the city...but I will let the pictures do the talking....

FYI: If you buy the stairways book (which I truly recommend that you do --- I bought it at the de Young Museum book store) it is "out of date" and does not mention the brand new 16th and Kirkham stairway (Hidden Garden Steps / Hidden Garden Park)

“Spectacular views and great mosaic steps”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We were chasing mosaics around San Fran and found this near one. The steps leading up to it were my favorite mosaic in the city, depicting the creation of the earth and at the top were more steps, wooden this time, leading to the best view I've seen of the city, from the pacific to Oakland. A perfect place to try the panorama function on my camera. Still can't capture the spectacle, though.

“It's all about the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

This park looks truly ugly from the outside. And it's tiny! But when you climb up the stairs to the very top, you will see why it's called "grand view park" Amazing, and completely unexpected 360 degree views of San Francisco, all of San Francisco. Loved it!
