This was one of the first places I visited when I moved to San Francisco. I would bring Shawn, then five, and we would picnic and feed the ducks. He loved the Exploritorium! It is still one of the first stop on tours for my SF visitors. It is so beautiful. I keep thinking I will win the lottery and be able to purchase one of the houses directly across the street or on the Marina Green with a view of the Golden Gate!!!

Great photos!
