We have a site reserved with picnic tables, grill & restrooms in Golden Gate Park's Hellman Hollow (formerly called Speedway Meadow). We have tables 1, 2, 3 & 4.

Hellman Hollow stretches out along the south side of John F. Kennedy Drive – just west of Transverse Drive (off of 25th Avenue). Don’t forget that cars are not permitted on the street east of Crossover Drive on Saturdays (from April to September).

GGP Map:

BY CAR-If you're driving, it's probably easiest to enter the park on 30th Ave from Fulton. Take 30th into the park, turn left (east) on JFK Drive where you'll see Hellman Hollow (Speedway Meadow) on the right no more than a quarter mile. If you hit Transverse Drive you've gone too far. Free parking along JFK.

BY BUS-If you're taking MUNI, take the 5-Fulton (Outbound to Cabrillo & La Playa) and get off at 30th Avenue. Follow 30th Avenue into the park to where it meets JFK Drive and Lindley Meadow. Turn left on JFK Drive to get to Hellman Hollow just a short way down and it'll be on your right.

BY BART-If you're coming in via BART, get off at the Powell Street station and catch the 5-Fulton MUNI at the Market/Powell stop and take it to 30th Avenue as noted above.

BY GOLDEN GATE PARK SHUTTLE-Golden Gate Park has a shuttle that runs on weekends. You can catch it at McLaren Lodge which is located at the Stanyan entrance of the park at the end of Fell/Oak streets. Look for the black Bauer's shuttle. It's $2 for an all-day pass and has a stop at 25th & Transverse which is very near to Hellman Hollow. It runs every 15-20 minutes until 6pm. Here's the link to the shuttle map:

I think that covers all the bases. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, or want one of our cell numbers in case you need to contact me while we're at the park, please drop me a line.
