Koret Children's Quarter

Koret Children's Quarter in Golden Gate Park is one of the oldest, biggest, and best playgrounds in San Francisco - featuring a huge, gloriously terrifying slide down a hillside, an antique carousel, and an amazing climbing structure in which kids can easily get lost (in a good way!)

The playground (formerly known as Children's Playground) was originally built in 1887 and is thought to be the nation's first public playground. Koret Children's Quarter reopened in the summer of 2007 after extensive renovations and upgrades.

Kids - and adults - of all ages love the 1912 carousel, but most of the play structures are designed for children over age three, so toddlers may prefer the smaller playground located north of the Music Concourse near the 8th Avenue entrance from Fulton Street.
