Side Trip: Salesforce Park
Welcome to Werqwise Side Trip, a series of videos and articles focused on exploring the areas around our locations, and introducing you to some of our favorite spots! Join us on a breathtaking adventure to Salesforce Park, a 5.4 acre public rooftop park that's four stories off the ground and extends to nearly four city blocks! Located just two blocks from Werqwise San Francisco, there is no better place to immerse yourself in nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
425 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94105 (415) 597-5000
Did you know? Salesforce Park opened its doors to thousands of people on August 11, 2018 with a free neighborhood block party, which included performances, games, tours, fitness classes, and music.
Salesforce Park is one of the best places to be when in downtown San Francisco. Whether you're looking for after-work rooftop concerts, to relax, a place to bring your kids, exercise, a place to have lunch, a place for a picnic, playing boardgames with friends, or a cold & refreshing beer at the Salesforce Beer Garden.
Werqwise members love stepping out for a walk in the park during a workday, as it offers a verdant escape that can significantly boost mental well-being and creativity. Nature’s palette, with its myriad greens and florals, serves as a visual break from the monotony of screens and artificial lights, reinvigorating the senses. The rhythmic cadence of walking coupled with the tranquil surroundings lowers stress levels, as the fresh air and natural light help to release endorphins, elevating mood and clearing the mind. Have a work call that you don't need to be on video for? Pop in your headphones and take the call as you get your steps in for the day! After all, a landmark study from Stanford university found that creative output increased by a whopping 60% when participants were walking!
