40 - Senior Citizens Center
The Senior Citizens Center in
Golden Gate Park is just west of the
36th Avenue entrance into the north side of the park. It was
originally built as the S.F. Police Training Academy, and little
love-making has occurred there since! However, there's more potential
After entering the park from 36th Avenue, turn right
onto a small, winding road that heads west past the center out to the
Dog Training Area. Stop at the parking lot for the training area and
come back along the road about 30 yards toward the old folks center.
Turn left on the footpath that goes northwest away from the road. Then
after just five yards, turn right on a small but distinct trail.
This trail winds back around about 15 yards to a small
clearing that is pleasant and shady. This place is private in that
it's out of view and there is little reason to come back here, other
than the reason you came.
