Twin Peaks Overlook

San Francisco, CA

Overlooking the City of San Francisco and much of the Bay Area, this popular vantage point provides breathtaking views for both local and international visitors. The overlook is over eight hundred feet above the surrounding city and is the terminus of the great San Francisco axis that extends from Twin Peaks, down Market Street, past the Ferry Building, and out to Yerba Buena Island. The primary viewing area extends over the sloping topography and is accessed by steps and ramps via an inner level terrace. California native plantings at the site include Lupine, a favorite of the Mission Blue butterfly, Ceanothus, and Monterey Cypress. Unique on-site rock walls are made of stone indigenous to the San Francisco Bay area. The project was completed in 1984 and received an Honor Award from the Northern California Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
