Formerly known as Funston Park, the area was renamed in honor of slain political figure George Moscone.
The park includes tennis courts, baseball diamonds, children's playgrounds, basketball courts, and putting greens. The park has been a favorite of San Franciscans since its inception in the 1920's. Joe Dimaggio took Marilyn Monroe on a stroll at the park in the hours prior to their marriage at City Hall. Robin Williams, Danielle Steele, and Sharon Stone were known to take their small children to the park without fear of paparazzi.
