Take A Tax Break: Canoeing & Community Hike This Saturday in McLaren

April 15th maybe one of the most dreaded days of the year.  But thankfully, with the tax deadline extended to the 18th this year, all of us procrastinators are getting an extension.  So, instead of digging though receipts and 1099 forms this Saturday, we suggest heading out to the park to join in on one of these special events happening this Saturday only:


Healthy Parks, Healthy People Trail Walk

Meet in McLaren Park at University & Mansell, next to the sign from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Join us for a walk through McLaren Park, San Francisco’s second largest park. The walk starts with light stretching, followed by a guided walk through groves of redwoods and cypress trees. This walk is moderately strenuous yet all will be rewarded with an amazing view of San Francisco. Meet by the McLaren Park sign next to the 29 Muni bus stop at University & Mansell.

For a more enjoyable walk remember to dress comfortably, wear walking shoes, bring water and use sunscreen.

Please check local weather forecasts – Trail Walks will be canceled due to rain or unsafe conditions. For more information, email [email protected]

It’s your last chance to be part of Canoemobile in the Bay Area this year!

Connect with Wilderness Inquiry staff and partners for water and land-based activities focused on natural and cultural history, teambuilding, and water safety. Invite your friends and family to enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.

Start/End: McLaren Park – McNab Lake (View Map)

    Take a break and head to this place which is huge and attractive. The park is immensely popular and with all the facilities and if you really want to have fun with every guidance needed then this latest event is for you. You are getting multiple options so, I don’t think time or day is the issue for you. You can take along your family to this place and the charges are not much either!
