    Lincoln Park

    It's better in person.

    The park covers 193 acres, but the most interesting part for me is a memorial to the Holocaust victims by artist George Segal. The ultra-haunting white figures typical of Segal's work will stay with you for a long, long time.It's worth going just for that.

    it's a pity that Lands End Don t have a separate things to do tip since it is located just at parts of Lincoln Park, fort miley military reservation and near the mouth of Golden Gate Bride. Attention tip editors! Well I have to start my review and here it goes, the Spanish named Lands End's westernmost promontory Point Lobos, so-called for the many lobos marinos (sea wolves, or sea lions as they're known today) that once hauled up on the rocks offshore. The rocks are now roosts for two dark bird species, cormorants and oystercatchers, among others. Trails at Lands End offer a cliff-top walk through shadowy cypress, with scenic overlooks, 30-mile views of the coast, and foot access to several shoreline pocket beaches so if you are nature dude or a bicylce dude or just a plain brisk walker or hiker dude, then this park is for you. These wave- and wind-carved headlands west of the Golden Gate connect two popular landmarks: the Cliff House and the Palace of the Legion of Honor and the views of the golden gate here are better than in touristy vista points since it provides a nature backdrop to the golden gate bridge.

    the lincoln park is a huge swathe of land in the western side of san francisco (that was formerly a cemetery) near the presidio and among it's star attractions beside the golf links are the huge Palace of Legion of Honor Complex and Lands End. Lincoln Park is everything on the San Francisco side of the Coast Trail and is 138 acres of parkland which includes Fort Miley, the Fort Miley Veterans Hospital, The Palace of the Legion of Honor, and the Lincoln Municipal Golf Course. If you are a fit person and likes to walk at lot, you can do a brisk walk around the park on the winding and elevated roads in it to go the nice areas. You can start walking from Ocean beach up to the Presidio while passing through the various areas of Lincoln Park since the admission is free.
