This majestic building in the Financial District houses a little secret. The outer columns of the building lead into a large greenhouse which is actually one of the city's POPO's, or Privately Owned Public Outdoor spaces, so its open for general use. It is a great spot to enjoy a nice break from the city with lunch or simply to people-watch through the open entryway.
Having undergone a major facelift in 2015, the Bendetti Diamond works as a sprawling ballpark, while its 3D turf, made with eco-friendly, recyclable material, enables patrons an immersive viewing experience.

The park was first constructed in 1855, by George Gordon an English entrepreneur. The oval shaped park in the SoMa neighborhood of the city, is at the center of a residential area with mansions and town houses surrounding it. It once had a windmill in the center which pumped water for the houses around it. South Park was the first park in San Francisco having paved streets and sidewalks. Just a few blocks away from AT&T stadium, several cafes offering French, Italian and Mexican fare encircle the small park.
This attractive sun terrace is just one of the city's many POPO's (Privately Owned Public Outdoor Spaces). As it is far above street level, not many people know about this delightful rooftop garden. Full of plants, flowers, trees and plenty of seating, this is a great spot to enjoy a nice lunch or just take in a little sun.
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.
