Description

South Park is a neat little park tucked away in the heart of SOMA. It was originally conceived over 100 years ago as a London-style city garden, lined with upscale houses. In the 1990's it was "ground zero" for the dot-com boom. Now it's a welcome escape from the office with a hummingbird garden, native plantings and two play areas.

The play areas are in the center of the park. I found them to be clean, but with older play structures. My kids really loved the tall slide and long swings in the big kid play area. All the better to go faster and higher.

The little kid play area is fenced in with smaller swings and lots of sand. The play areas are separated by picnic tables. Both have lots of shade. Because of so much shade, some areas of the grass were muddy and sparse, but overall not bad.
