Enjoy the Parks in San Francisco
San Francisco is literally littered with parks, each with their own special personality and exciting feature. If you make your way to the corner of Douglass Street and Seward Street, you’ll find a park with hidden concrete slides that are a couple stories high. Cardboard is spread about, and it’s custom to just grab a piece and take an exhilarating ride which usually ends on your butt at the bottom.
