The Panhandle is a stretch of park that extends from the east edge of Golden Gate Park to Baker Street. It is bordered by Fell St. and Oak St. from the north and south. This park is also bounded by the Haight-Ashbury and Western Addition districts.
This park has a children's playground and basketball courts; and there are restrooms (and water faucets) in the middle of the park at Ashbury St. Biking/jogging trails wind along both the north and south edges of the park. There are also plenty of benches to sit on and take in the scenery.
The Panhandle is owned by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
