If you live in the neighborhood, Huntington Park in San Francisco’s Nob Hill, it's a great place to relax, read a book, or, as Haris Butt says, bring your dog to Friday nights’ “Yappy Hour.”

“80 percent of the people I know in my neighborhood, I've met through this park,” says Butt. “I know more dogs than I know people’s names, actually.”
