This past Saturday, I decided to stay in the neighborhood and sketch the city skyline. The good news is that there are wonderful views of the city just outside my apartment, but the only downside is that they come at the price of climbing some insanely steep hills. After trekking up the hills, I stumbled upon Ina Coolbrith Park, which offers some of the best views of the city accompanied by trees and benches. I have to admit, I have walked by this park so many times and did not realize it had such a perfect walkway and viewing area. I am definitely coming back here the next time I need somewhere to think.
Fun Fact: Ina Coolbrith Park is named after the first California Poet Laureate.
The bench I was lucky enough to enjoy alone in peace
Just to give you an idea how clear the view is
You can see from Coit Tower all the way to the high rises in Downtown
