Though it’s one of the city’s largest parks, not many San Franciscans have been to John McLaren Park, sequestered as it is on the southern edge of the city. But for those in the know, McLaren is just as delightful a spot for strolling, picnicking and playing as Golden Gate Park. At this 312-acre open space you'll find seven miles of trails, playgrounds, a golf course and even a dog-friendly reservoir. The open-air Jerry Garcia Amphitheater hosts annual free Shakespeare in the Park productions and other performances in warmer months.
