Tank Hill Park is located in San Francisco near the intersection of Clayton Street and Twin Peaks Boulevard, which circumscribes the hill to the south and east. A rocky outcropping defines the north side, which falls in cliffs to houses below.Use our San Francisco attractions planning website to arrange your visit to Tank Hill and other attractions in San Francisco.
From the south, and higher side of the hill, along Twin Peaks Boulevard, steps and a path lead to the top of the hill, which offers wonderful views of downtown San Francisco and the Golden Gate.
The top of the hill offers flat and paved areas that date back to civic waterworks that once existed on the top of the hill.
Tank Hill is a popular area for local residents to gather to watch municipal fireworks on the 4th of July. Crissy Field, to the north, is the usual site of a large San Francisco fireworks display, but the hills also offers views of fireworks in Oakland and the East Bay.
Tank Hill reviews
I never knew the name of this hill, but visited it regularly when living in the Haight in the 1970s. It’s a beautiful view! Take the walk if you have time. I wasn’t sure this was the hill of memory.... more »
Stunning views from the Ocean and the Golden Gate round across the Bay, to the Bay Bridge and beyond. Muni N to Carl & Cole; either walk or bus 37 up Cole; approach the park along Shrader and... more »
Beautiful, short urban hike up a diverse set of increasingly rustic staircases. Beautiful place to watch the sun set. I learned new things about the city's geography from being up here!
I'm tempted to give this place a bad review just to ensure people keep going to twin peaks instead of tank hill. Great view over San Francisco and the GG bridge (on a clear day) and almost no people even in early July. Much more pleasant to walk to than twin peaks too, especially if you come from the GG park area.
