Alta Plaza lays claim to a unique role in San Francisco ‘s history. It operated as a rock quarry until 1877 when the City purchased the 12-acre parcel for park development. However, thirty years elapsed before its transformation into the incomparable terraced plaza of today. Conceived and executed by John McLaren, designer of Golden Gate Park, its elevated design reveals sweeping views of San Francisco.

The park is one of 114 sites in San Francisco with an Outdoor Warning System siren. In an actual emergency, the siren tone will cycle repeatedly for 5 minutes and you should go indoors and immediately tune to a news source such as KCBS 740 AM, or other local media stations.
