Salesforce Garden and the New TransBay Terminal Walking Tour

10/3/2019 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM PT

Salesforce 61-story tower is the new tallest building in San Francisco! We will start our walking tour at the Salesforce Plaza at Mission and Fremont and see the intriguing lobby of the building.  Then we take an elevator or gondola or escalator to the 4th level garden where the “awe factor” continues.  We will do several blocks of walking to loop through the complete garden above the new transit center. There are signs to explain each of the thirteen unique and colorful gardens. This huge open space in the middle of downtown San Francisco is complete with fountains and spaces for entertainment as well as many benches and tables to rest, eat and socialize.  The tour continues with insights into the buildings and neighborhood around the tower and gardens.  The 2 hour tour also visits other rooftop gardens and open spaces in the area and ends with a walk “over the water” to see another view of the skyline.
 
Food options: Food trucks are available to purchase food on the main level.  Across Mission St., there are several casual restaurants or Rincon Center has a food court.
 

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
