The true highlight of the Salesforce mini-neighborhood is Salesforce Park, a sprawling urban park with 13 ecosystems atop the four-block-long Salesforce Transit Center. It's a downtown green gem, a true civic accomplishment. This is a favorite destination for families, walkers, and workers trying to get fresh air on their lunch break. The park can be reached via elevators, escalators, or a thrilling gondola ride from the base of the Salesforce Tower at Fremont and Mission Streets.
