Buena Vista Park information
True to its name, this park founded in 1867 offers splendid vistas over the city to Golden Gate Bridge as a reward for hiking up the steep hill ringed by stately century-old California oaks. Take Buena Vista Ave West downhill to spot Victorian mansions that survived the 1906 earthquake and fire. After-hours boozing or cruising is risky, given petty criminal activity.
