Fodor's Review

If you can manage the steep climb, this eucalyptus-filled park has great city views. Dog walkers and homeless folks make good use of the park, the only green area in the Haight. Be sure to scan the stone rain gutters lining many of the park's walkways for inscribed names and dates; these are the remains of gravestones left unclaimed when the city closed the Laurel Hill cemetery around 1940. You might also come across used needles and condoms; definitely avoid the park after dark, when these items are left behind.
