Where Little Ones Run Wild and Free
Lafayette Park Playground Golden Gate Park
At Koret Children's Quarter, kids can climb a wave-shaped wall and a rope web, slide down a concrete slide (bring cardboard), ride a lovely 1914 restored carousel and play in grassy fields.
Yerba Buena Gardens Playground
Take in the fresh air on the rooftop of Yerba Buena Gardens, home to an interactive playground, a carousel, an ice-skating rink, a bowling center and the Children's Garden, a city oasis with gardens and streams. The playground in the small hilltop park with sweeping views features climbing structures, metal slides, an orange spinning ride, swings and rubberized ground.
