Extending east from Golden Gate Park and nestled between Lone Mountain and Haight-Ashbury, is the Panhandle, a narrow expanse of green that stretches for three quarters of a mile. Pick up games of basketball are common and joggers and bicyclists take full advantage of the winding paths that run its length. Grand homes, many of which are Victorians, line the Panhandle where traffic streams along Oak and Fell Streets.

Panhandle, San Francisco Reviews
The loud oasis
A lot of runners and bicyclists in the Panhandle, with your mix of Hipsters and bums. You’ll consider the Panhandle a nice escape from city-living until you hear all of the traffice zooming by while you’re sitting among the trees. You’ll feel a bit more comfortable cracking open a beer with a friend in this park than Golden Gate, but it’s also just a rough sliver of what Golden Gate has to offer.
