San Francisco: Transamerica Redwood Park; things to do


San Francisco

Transamerica Redwood Park  600 Montgomery St./Merchant St.  M-F 7am-5:30pm. 

Situated on the east side of the Transamerica Pyramid building,  this privately owned redwood grove is found unexpectedly in the middle of San Francisco’s skyscrapers.  Trees for the half-acre grove were brought in from the Santa Cruz Mountains and transplanted in 1957.  There are now 56, and some reach 100 feet.  And who knows?  Perhaps these trees will one day be as tall as the pyramid itself.  Benches and tables offer visitors respite, but note that this urban park is locked up each night.

  1. Transamerica Redwood Park looks like a lovely green 'lung' for the city - and amazing that these lovely trees are found in amongst San Francisco's skyscrapers.

  2. How unusual it must be to visitors who happen upon the Transamerica Redwood Park. What a find in the midst of a busy urban metropolis.

  4. I've been to Humboldt Park in Northern CA but had no idea there were some of these amazing trees right in San Francisco! Will definitely check out next time I'm there!
