John McLaren Park - Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre

The Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre is one of the most spectacular performance venues in San Francisco. The Greek-style theater, with its outstanding acoustics and generous green room facilities, is appropriate for all kinds of musical and dramatic performances. The Amphitheatre is named after Grateful Dead member Jerry Garcia, a native to the local Excelsior District community, and is located within John McLaren Park, San Francisco's second-largest park located in the southeast area of the city. Unlike the city's more famous Golden Gate Park, which is noted for its horticultural aspects, McLaren Park is a natural park, and is ideal for hikers, bird watchers, and folks simply interested in escaping the noise of urban life without having to leave the city.
