Golden Gate Park Carousel

City , Park

Generations of San Franciscans (and young visitors from around the world!) have fond memories of the children's playground and carrousel in Golden Gate Park's southeast corner. The playground, called the Sharon Quarters for Children when it opened in 1888, is thought to have been the nation's first public playground. In that era, the idea of providing a dedicated space solely for youth recreation was groundbreaking. The nearby Sharon Building was designed for indoor play during bad weather; it now houses Sharon Art Studio, which offers art classes for both children and adults.

To reserve the picnic area adjacent to the carrousel and playground, please call (415) 831-5500.
