By chance, I came across a picture of someone on a swing with SF’s skyline in the background. The most basic Google search (“Swing San Francisco”) did not only provide me with the location, but also with a couple more awesome pictures of happy people happily swinging their swing. Of course I had to go.
Billy Goat Hill is located in Glen Park/Diamond Heights, just west of Bernal Heights. If you go by car, you can drive up the hill, conveniently park in the neighborhood and start shooting pictures. If you take public transport, take the 24 from Castro – or Google Map the most convenient transit option from wherever you are located.
The swing has been around for decades and the ropes get replaced regularly. Trust me- it’s fun and so instagram worthy 😉
