SF-Joe Dimaggio Playground-in process-c2015 Carole Terwilliger Meyers-400pix

DiMaggio  Playground  Columbus Ave./Greenwich St., North Beach.  Free.  This simple spot is where the late baseball legend Joe DiMaggio played in his youth.  Kids love it here.  The playground is currently under construction and scheduled to open for play in early 2016.

Julius Kahn Playground  End of Pacific St./Spruce St., Presidio/Pacific Heights.  Free.  “JK”--as it is popularly known--has plenty of wide-open space as well as swings, sandboxes, and tennis courts.  It is designed to resemble a modern Parisian-style play area and to have the aesthetic feel of Luxembourg Gardens.
