  • We took a walk along the Bay and enjoyed seeing again the statue - Cupid's Span. Its impressive especially on a sunny day.  more »
  • I took a nice walk along the Bay and took a photo of Cupid's Arrow. It is a 60 foot sculpture and was commissioned by the Gap.  more »
  • If you love dogs, this is the place to be! Lots of loving doggos run around and play here. The unobstructed views of the Bay Bridge and the grassy area are so nice on a warm evening. THIS IS A MUST SEE!
  • Beside this bow and arrow monument there is nothing great about this place and it is quite far from Pier 39. So if you think of exploring it by walk then kindly give a second thought. Cranes will come into the picture because of the construction work going behind the monument as on writing this review. If you have spare time and wanted to cover everything in SFO, then you should visit this place as well.
