Best Ghost of Railroads Past

Juri Commons

The future of parks and recreation in San Francisco is being built in Dolores Park, but a glimpse of the past can be found a mere mile to the south: Juri Commons, a tiny, blink-and-you'll-miss-it strip that cuts a narrow diagonal for a single block between Guerrero and San Jose. Twenty-five feet wide and 120 feet long, this mellow community park is one of the few visual remnants of the long-defunct San Francisco-San Jose Railroad line, and while it's far too small and intimate to be a replacement for Dolores Park revelry, it's a perfect destination for a weekend stroll.
