Horseshoe Court – San Francisco CA


Work consisted of excavation and building masonry rubble walls, 3,000 feet of red rock paths, 600 lineal feet of sewer, a standard convenience station and general renovation of an existing court surrounded by walls of natural floral beauty. This improvement is much appreciated by those who have enjoyed the popular spot for many years in Golden Gate Park. It is suitable for tournaments and competing groups.–Healy, p. 53.

    GOLDEN GATE PARK HORSESHOE PITS – SAN FRANCISCO CA is not correctly located on map. It should be further north of location indicated by red dot. If you enlarge map, you will see that HORSESHOE PITS is actually marked on map and that is where red do should be.
