Salesforce Park: Free gondola ride and play area

Given how expensive most Bay Area attractions have become, I was absolutely stunned to learn that an outing to Salesforce Park, including a ride in the glass gondola, is free. Located at Mission and Fremont Streets, at the base of the future Transit Center, the gondola operates from 8 am to 8 pm and there is no ticketing required. Website for updated hours and details >>

The short ride takes guests up to Salesforce Park, a beautifully landscaped rooftop garden with a strolling path, multiple play structures, access to restrooms, and abundant seating areas. The entire park sits a couple of stories above street level.

Community activities are on a schedule, including family-centric programming, such as Free Outdoor Family Fun: Rotating Shows & Exciting Stories which is slated for every Sunday in September.

Several of our contributors have taken their children on this outing, where the only expense is either your BART fare or parking. One reader said, “Taking a double-decker Transbay bus and then going to this park has been the highlight of my 2-year old’s life.” Add Salesforce Park to your September bucket list!
