Laurel Hill is a small playground, but what some might call small, others will call cozy! It has a well-maintained play structure and sand pit geared for younger children, tennis court, baseball field, a full basketball court, and a rec center! There are bathrooms available on-site and plenty of benches to rest your feet while you watch your kids play. Dogs are allowed on a leash only.

What makes this playground special, is that it hosts a teaching laboratory for Childhood Development and Family Study students at City College of San Francisco. From 9am-12noon Monday through Friday during the academic year, the students organize activities, music, and games for toddlers and preschoolers. It amounts to a free drop-in preschool program, and it's a great opportunity for parents and children to meet and make friends. Bring your own snack; no peanuts, popcorn, whole grapes, or candy. This is not a drop-off situation. Adults are expected to participate in the group. For a schedule, call the
Child Development and Family Studies Dept at CCSF at 415.239.3172.
