Surto Heights Park


I have to give props for this one to friend of mine. I told him that I was going over to the old Sutro Baths to take some pics and he told me to go across the street and take some pics of Sutro Heights Park. I said okay. Sutro Heights Park was the estate of Adolph Sutro who was a silver baron and a major land/developer in San Francisco who passed away in 1898. His daughter took over the property and couldn't maitain the house or grounds. After her death in 1938, it was turned over to city and made into a park. These days it is no longer owned by the city but part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and maintained by a local neighborhood group:











There is really not much left of the Sutro Home but it is great to thnk about how grand the house was:




Sutro Heights Park is a great place in San Francisco to explore and walk around.

  3. I would love to visit the park and the old pool complex. I saw a documentary about them and was fascinated because my aunt had actually been there before. Your photos are gorgeous! #SpreadTheKindness

  6. How lovely that his legacy lived on - first through his daughter, then the city, and now the neighbourhood group. I love it when gardens aren't absorbed into suburban sprawl.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM :)

  9. Nice of your friend to suggest it! The lily is one of my favorite flowers and this is a great shot of it! My wedding bouquet had only these lilies and no other flowers. 😊 Thanks for linking on Amanda’s Books and More!

  19. You know, I haven't been in that park in a long time. I go to the Sutro bath ruins now and then, but I often fail to cross Point Lobos Drive to the other side to see this. I should next time.
