Fort Mason offers gorgeous views of the Golden Gate, a well-manicured lawn, and a communal vibe making a great spot to relax on sunny days.

When the sun comes out in San Francisco, Fort Mason's Great Meadow Park transforms into ground zero for bocce ball, corn hole, wiffle ball, music, dancing, wine, and beer. While it lacks the diversity and quirkiness found at Dolores Park, it makes up for it with a beautiful panoramic view of the Golden Gate and the Bay and good vibes. If you're looking to celebrate a sunny summer day in the city, Fort Mason is the perfect place to set up camp. Parking is easy and a Safeway is right across the street for all of your last minute needs.

Stayed At Hostel

The hostel right on the premises was extremely convenient and affordable. Having access to this green space (pictured) and the fisherman’s wharf and other areas attractions was extremely clutch.

Beautiful Place To Hang
