Additional free, parallel parking runs alongside the entirety of Mason St. Do no park at the Sports Basement. For paid parking options (max typically $8/day), consider using ParkMe. Most sites are a 5-10 min walk to the East Beach picnic area. Fan of your GPS? Use 1199 East Beach, San Francisco, CA 94129. Give yourself extra time and don't rely on it solely. Or if you can, choose ride-share!
