Looking for a respite from the downtown rat race? Peace and tranquility amid the high-power high-rises? It's here – you just have to know where to look.
Downtown San Francisco’s Secret Spaces and Hidden Oases, your map to 50 privately owned, publicly accessible parks and open spaces.
Tucked away yet open to all, they come in many forms, including:
* A rooftop sun deck, accessible through a hidden mall staircase
* An underground waterfall and garden
* A living bamboo forest
* An artistic collaboration between poet Robert Haas and conceptual sculptor Paul Kos
Although San Francisco’s downtown office district provides work and living space for more than a quarter-million people, it has almost no publicly owned and managed parks.
As a result, the privately owned public open spaces located within this district play an important role in the city’s urban fabric.

What's New in Version 1.3.11
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Worse interface than the PDF.
The content may be great, but the app doesn't help you see that.
No way to filter by ranking! Awkward graphic design. Strange UI, presenting menus where there is only one element to use.
This app has the feeling of something that was generated automatically from a database, rather than designed with deliberate attention. I guess it's cheaper that way.
I'll save you $2
There are 52 places and all 52 are in the FiDi of SF. Who knew? Apparently nothing else cool or interesting could be added to this app prior to its release to the App Store.
