Map & Details>>

Coolbrith Park, located at the end of a cul-de-sac in tony Russian Hill, is an unexpected clearing that peeks out over urban Chinatown's neon signs. During the day, it's a lovely little oasis for a picnic. And when the sun goes down, the area is sheltered from the wind, making it a perfect spot to do a little citified stargazing. Also, if you're very, very quiet — and, given the neighborhood, um, you really should be quiet — Coolbrith Park provides another sensory sensation: From this spot you can hear the distant sound of foghorns and, closer, the sea lions barking near Fisherman's Wharf.
