In the middle on Rincon Park is the cupid’s Span sculpture. It is over two storeys high, and was created by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The point of the arrow was purposely buried so as to minimize any violent connotations. It is a perfect place to relax, play with your dog, or chill with friends and enjoy the view on a sunny day.

The Golden Gate Bridge is considered as one of the world’s most beautiful bridges with its tremendous towers, sweeping main cables and great span. The Golden Gate Bridge was the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937. It is a 4,200 foot suspension bridge that connects the south shore of Marin County with the northern tip the San Francisco peninsula and San Francisco County. The bridge is 90 feet wide and the height of the bridge is 220 feet. The bridge is open to auto and bicycle traffic for 24 hours, pedestrians only during daylight hours. It is powerful and elegant human structure in an equally beautiful natural location.
