Why locals recommend it
Even after several years of running in the city, I’m always discovering new paths in the park. I love running along John F. Kennedy Drive, especially on the weekends when it’s closed to traffic. It leads from the Haight all the way to the Pacific Ocean, about 3.5 miles each way. Lots of places to turn off, too, like Stow Lake, which is about a mile around. Once you get close to the ocean on JFK, look out for the bison. Yep, San Francisco has bison living in Golden Gate Park!

What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points)…
