Urban Garden Walk Featured Gardens

Tenderloin National Forest
Tenderloin National Forest
In 2014, these five gardens in San Francisco's Tenderloin district were featured on our Urban Garden Walk tour showcasing a variety of designs and plants.  Each has its own unique story, and is an integral part of the community.

More Gardens

In addition to the featured gardens, the Tenderloin is home to several others. 

  • Organic Mechanics - an extraordinary urban retreat, an oasis made from a former paved parking lot behind a 1920s-vintage apartment building
  • The Hummingbird Garden at the Tilden Hotel - a nearby Organic Mechanics creation at 345 Taylor Street (where the Fish & Farm organic restaurant is located)
  • The Demonstration Gardens - an environmental literacy program between UC Hastings and the SYL Central YMCA.  With the motto "Bloom Where You Are Planted", they work with all ages and abilities.
