Secret Playground: Corona Park
The Chron’s got an article about the Hills of SF.
Most noteworthy to you, dear metblog reader, is the mention of Corona Heights.
This secret sanctuary, little nook of urban relief, sits at the end of 15th street, a short walk only a few blocks away from the busy Castro/Market St intersection. There’s a playground, some tennis courts, a good portion of flat ground suitable for a bacci tournament and maybe a sun drenched picnic if you prefer. And if you want a real view, the short hike up to the peak of Corona Heights 510 foot summit allows for one second to only the Twin Peaks themselves.
Try and make it on a nice sunny day (as long as we have a few left.) Take a date — who doesn’t like to find out about secret parks they’ve never heard of before? And because Corona Park nearly begs to be forgotten when you’re not there enjoying it, I’ll repost when its spring.
Corona Park and Heights — walk 3 blocks or so up 15th St., from Market, away from the Castro.
