This park, which has been extensively revamped, is a great addition to the Park Merced area. Rolph Nicol is a small park/playground with beautifully groomed grass and surrounded by great big eucalyptus trees. It offers a play structure for kids and plenty of space for a dog to run around or to play catch or frisbee with a friend.
Rolph-Nicol Park is owned by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
There are no close Muni stops, so some walking is required.
