Lonely Planet review
On San Francisco's literary scene, all roads eventually lead to Ina Coolbrith, California's first poet laureate; colleague of Mark Twain and Ansel Adams; mentor to Jack London, Isadora Duncan, George Sterling and Charlotte Perkins Gilman; and lapsed Mormon (she kept secret that her uncle was Mormon-prophet Joseph Smith). The tiny park is a fitting honor – long on romance and exclamation-inspiring vistas.
Climb past gardens, decks and flower-framed apartments, and when fog blows, listen for the whooshing in the treetops.
