Lafayette Park reviews
Beautiful Urban Park on Pacific heights. Across the street from spreckels Mansion, and the best view of the mansion. Great place to bring the kids to play. Found a curbside parking spot on a Sunday... more »
We love this park. Great playground for kids and excellent views of the city. It's clean, people are nice, and impressively the bathrooms are super clean. more »
Quiet clean park with lovely dogs. I love coming here even though it's a hike up a giant hill on all four sides. It's great to come here to enjoy the wonderful plants and garden.
This is one of our favorite dog play areas. The location is great and there doesn't seem to be much riffraff. It's quite large and plenty of benches, trails, or grassy areas. The playground looks large enough to lose your child in, fun! Although my only beef would be that the dog play area is not fully closed in so if your dog has a mind of his own you really need to pay attention or he'll be off in the bushes chasing the critters. Other than that, great park with wonderful views.
