Officially known as the “Salesforce Transit Center”, this rooftop park opened to the public (after some initial delays) in May 2019. Salesforce park takes up almost 4 blocks, and sits in the heart of the Financial District, above the city streets.
Areas include a bamboo grove, walkable glass floor, amphitheater for up to 1000 people, childrens play area, fountain, and a walking trail around the perimeter.
Events include free yoga classes, concerts, silent disco nights, swing dancing, and and movie nights under the stars.
The park is 1 1/2 blocks south of Market Street, and stretches between 2nd Street and Beale Street.
There are many escalators and elevators, and there’s even a gondola which is free of charge and departs from the corner of Mission Street and Fremont Street. This one-way gondola ride that takes you from ground level to the park operates 8 a.m.-8 p.m. (May 1-Oct. 31) and 8 a.m.-7 p.m. (Nov. 1-Apr. 30), and is free of charge.
- Everyone’s welcome to enjoy this public park, a living roof where a curved walking trail lined with benches surrounds grassy lawns, dancing fountains, a children’s play area, and an amphitheater.
- While we love our four-legged friends, dogs are not allowed at Salesforce Park, which is home to delicate plants and habitat and 13 unique ecosystems. Service Dogs excepted.
- Seventy feet above the Grand Hall, the Park runs the entire length of the Transit Center’s nearly four-block stretch. Home to 600 trees and 16,000 plants arranged in 13 different botanical feature areas, the newest public park in the San Francisco Bay Area is for the benefit and enjoyment of all…and there’s nothing else like it anywhere.
