Sydney Walton Square is a public park located just west of the Embarcadero in San Francisco, California, United States. The park is named after San Francisco banker Sydney Grant Walton.
The 2-acre park was designed by Peter Walker. It was created as part of the city of San Francisco's partnership with Golden Gateway Center to bring more public art to the area. The park consists of public artwork by Jim Dine (Big Heart on the Rock), Marisol Escobar (Portrait of Georgia O'Keeffe), George Rickey (Two Open Rectangles), Joan Brown (Pine Tree Obelisk), Benny Bufano (The Penguins), and Francois Stahly (Fountain of Four Seasons). An old arch from the Colombo Market also resides in the park. It is the only remaining structure from San Francisco's historical produce district.

  • Nice little park, very quiet. The grass could use some attention from the Parks & Recreation department. The pheau "hills" (mounds of dirt with grass) are a bit weird somehow, they are out of place in an area that is naturally flat (in-fact, historically, the area was in the bay before it was filled in).
  • Nice little park in the financial district. Nice open spot for lunch. Safeway and lots of restaurants to grab stuff to go. Good place to people watch. But never gets to crowded . Embarcadero center and Ferry building close by. Come check it out.
