In the midst of Pacific Heights is Lafayette Park, a small grass park with trees which very much has the feel of a cozy neighbourhood family park. Popular as a safe place for young families, there are lots of park benches for seating, a water fountain and a children's playground area. It's also a popular work-out place for joggers to stretch their legs running around the hilly landscape before rewarding themselves by taking in the panoramic vista from the top. This park is especially popular for walking dogs, so be aware that the grass has a reputation for being very messy.
A few blocks to the south is Trinity Episcopal Church and further on is the Civic Center, a good stroll around 15 mins walk away. Alta Plaza park is the other open space in the neighbourhood, a couple blocks west on Washington and Steiner Streets.
