San Francisco's Hidden Gardens Won't Remain Secret for Long

Curbed San Francisco has compiled a list of 17 of San Francisco's secret gardens and overlooked green spaces. Hidden gems include mini parks, rooftop decks, and a tulip garden.

New York City isn't the only place full of overlooked urban refuges

"With summer in full bloom we thought it best to publish a map of some of San Francisco's best secret gardens," writes Curbed author Sally Kuchar. "On our map you'll find historic gardens being preserved on Alcatraz Island; a forest in the Tenderloin; a mini park rich with flowering foliage on an otherwise nondescript Sunnyside residential street, and more. Oh, and we added a slew of privately owned public open spaces (POPOS) in the FiDi and SoMa districts."
