Alta Plaza Park San Francisco is one of the parks with the most gorgeous views in the city. Three large flights of stairs lead you to the top of the hill, a playground, and several tennis and basketball courts.

This park features many different amenities and activities for your whole family to enjoy, including two tennis courts, a playground, walking trails and a basketball court. On the east side of the park, you can even walk your dog without a leash.

You’ll have plenty of paths to take if you’re walking your dog here. Even more convenient are the plastic bag dispensers filled by people of good grace in an attempt to keep the park poop free. Your pup is likely to get a good amount of exercise here.

Tank Hill San Francisco is a great place if you want some peace and quiet and a breathtaking view. It’s a must see! Tank Hill is one of San Francisco’s secret treasures. Its name comes from the Clarendon Heights Water Tank built in 1894 by the Spring Valley Water Company to store drinking water pumped from Laguna Honda.

The hill’s rich native plant community contains larval food plants for endangered butterflies as well as habitat for garter snakes, alligator lizards, western meadow larks, kestrals and hawks. The spring wildflower show is one of the city’s most spectacular sights as the hill changes colors from yellow in March, to purple in April, to pink in May. Tank Hill is a fragmented natural habitat, meaning that it is an island of natives surrounded by an ocean of exotic plants.

Tank Hill San Francisco is just a few miles away from the Adante Hotel at Union Square in San Francisco. Book directly on the Hotel’s Website for the lowest possible rates: http://www.adantehotel.com/reservations

The Transamerica Pyramid San Francisco is an iconic image for San Francisco. It was designed by architect William Pereira. According to the architect, the pyramid is the ideal shape for skyscrapers, offering the practical advantage of letting more air and light in the adjacent streets.

The base of the building contains a total of 16,000 cubic yards of concrete and over 300 miles of steel rebar. Forty-eight stories or 850 feet tall, it was among the five tallest buildings in the world when it was completed in 1972. The building owes its sparkling white color to the layer of crushed quartz that covers the rest of the building.
