Sutro Heights Park

On 48th Ave., betw. Geary Blvd. & Anza St., Outer Richmond District.  Free. 
          Formerly the house and estate of Adolph Sutro, this magnificent park was opened by him to the public in 1885.  His daughter gave the home and gardens to the city in the 1920s  to use as a free park.  It offers expansive views of the southern coastline and is perfect for a picnic, but hold on to little kids as drop-offs can be sudden and dangerous.
