What people are saying:

Pioneer Park, or Pioneer Park, is located on the top of Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. Address: 1 Telegraph Hill Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94133. Pioneer Park, covering about 4.89 acres, was established in 1876 to celebrate the centenary of the founding of the United States. Before the establishment of the park, the place belonged to the maritime telegraph station, so the mountain was called the telegraph mountain. Telegraph Hill, 83 meters above sea level, is one of the forty-four hills in San Francisco and one of the first seven hills. The main building in the Pioneer Park is the Coit Tower. The tower is sixty-four meters high, with a circular exterior and a very technical style. It is a reinforced concrete building; it was designed by architects Arthur Brown, Jr. and Henry Howard and was built from 1932 to 1933. Lillie Hitchcock Coit donated one-third of his estate, US$118,000 to San Francisco to beautify the city. The tower was built using the Coit bequest, so the tower was Named the Coit Tower; on January 29, 2008, the Coit Tower was included in the National Register of Historic Placeson (National Register of Historic Placeson). There is a bronze statue in front of the Coit Tower as a memorial. Coit Tower, also known as the Coit Memorial Tower, to show its respect to volunteer firefighters who died in five fires in San Francisco. As mentioned earlier: Departing from North Beach early in the morning, take a slow walk and then ascend, circled several times, climbed the stone steps, and came to Pioneer Park. At that time, there were few tourists, and all the people I saw were local climbers and runners, mostly slender and healthy women in their 20s and 30s. Take a small circle around the park, the photos taken are not as good as the landscape. Looking down from the height, from a distance, the Golden Gate Bridge, the tall city building, is in sight. When going down the mountain, I really got lost. Going up the mountain only needs to head towards the top of the mountain and see the Coit Tower, after only one climb, turn back to the intersection and re-select the route again. Descending from the top of the mountain, it is theoretically three hundred and sixty degrees, and a slight deviation when descending the mountain is far too much in the end. There is no short cut straight down. On the surface, it seemed that it was close to the goal in my heart, but it turned away. Simply cross the heart and go down in the direction of the sea. On the hillside facing the sea, the house is quite flavorful... Wandering everywhere, almost lost, but calm in my heart. Sunshine, clouds, dense trees, winding paths... I really want to get lost in the quiet. Finally, I walked around in a quiet neighborhood. Life is just like going up and down the mountain, with intention or unintentional, gain and loss, and loss and gain.
