Overview

Purchased in 1877 by the city Municipality, this 11.9 acres of land came to be known as Alta Plaza Park and was re-designed and developed under the supervision of John McLaren. It was re-modeled from a rock quarry with green grass covering its gouged hillsides, to lush lawns, slopes and terraces. The Park is blessed with a breathtaking view of both the city and the San Francisco bay. People walking their dogs, family picnics, children in the playground are common sights here.
