San Francisco parks

A lovely article in The Morning News on the parks of San Francisco, which happens to be one of my favorite cities in the world. The city is often described as America's most European city, and that may account in part for the charm. The combination of its location, weather, history, eclectic neighbourhoods and people, not to mention highly educated too, are some of the obvious reasons but there is that something extra that makes it such a great city.

An excerpt:
There seems to be a park every few blocks in San Francisco, so people often favor the park closest to their apartments. We meet in parks all year to listen to music, to share food, to celebrate together. Friends of mine married atop Tank Hill in their Hayes Valley neighborhood, and my own husband proposed at a nearby dog park with a hurricane fence and a sweeping view of the city lights. There are too many parks to list, and possibly to count, so these are a few of the standouts. I highly recommend coming to visit, so you can choose a favorite of your own.
