Brooks Park Video Tour

In the video below, Peter Vaernet, who essentially created Brooks Park as we know it today, will lead you on a enchanting tour of the park.

This Park is Dedicated to Our Neighbors in the OMI and San Francisco.
Every healthy community has a Village Meeting Place that all neighbors feel drawn to. Brooks Park is such a Village Meeting Place, where San Francisco residents grow vegetables, enjoy the hilltop wilderness, practice Tai Chi, play ping pong, bocce ball, badminton and volley ball.

Students come to earn community service hours with our Native Plant Habitat Restoration Project, while little children play in the playground.

All humans need nature contact for their mental and physical health, and the natural wilderness of Brooks Park provides this connection. Abundant bird life, trees, rocks and sweeping views of the Farallone Islands and Mt Tamalpais satisfy this craving for nature connectedness.

This space is yours. Please come to visit!
