All about kids, fun and families

The Tot Lot is adjacent to the Yerba Buena Garden’s Children’s Garden and Play Circle, where kids can fly down a 25-foot long tube slide, scale a kid-safe climbing wall and splash in stream and fountain. It’s located along Howard and Fourth streets on the rooftop of Moscone South in front of the Ice Rink and near the Children’s Creativity Museum.
