View From The Top

Tue, June 13th

Permits for all new buildings in San Francisco mandate areas that are open and free to the public. When space next to the building is available, colorful little “parks” have been planted, and if no space is adjacent, a garden on the rooftop offers beautiful “views from the top.” With Craig Smith as our guide, this popular tour explores a variety of small public parks and rooftop gardens not frequently visited or easily noticed. This walking tour visits several buildings and locations in the downtown, financial, and Embarcadero Center and requires use of elevators and escalators.
