O’Shaughnessy Hollow is separated from Glen Canyon’s west side by winding O’Shuaughnessy Blvd. This spectacular viewspot is on Mount Davidson’s east side.
Took the #36 Teresita to where Teresita connects with Marietta which curves to the east.
Marietta is divided W-E by plantings and a few steps. Wind east a short distance and a dramatic view opens up. Trails and rocks and views across to Diamond Heights with Glen Canyon below.
Once there was a swing at the main tree here, but next time visited the swing had been removed. At least the tree is still here.
Marietta east: 1 thru 7
The park and views from: 8 thru 40
Mount Davidson Park in distance: 41
Back out again and downhill on Marietta to steep Stillings, past Detroit (above the stairway) and Congo with views to the left (north) of where I was earlier: 42 thru thru 48
Continuing down to the Glen Park Rec. Center at the foot of Glen Canyon. Elk St. down from Bosworth is also steep: 49
Those of you who think there aren’t many children in San Francisco these days apparently have never seen the nannies and parents, strollers, and little kids in the playground area and coming and going from this park.
Glen Park Rec. Center: 50, 51
The only stairway this time has 24 steps to a delightful enclosed N-S trail between Elk and the tennis courts, exiting near Chenery. Do not know the name of this plant lining the trail — love it: 52 thru 63
Out of the ark at Elk near Chenery: 64, 65, 66
Chenery east to Diamond St. in the Glen Park neighborhood: 67 thru 75
