Tank Hill San Francisco is a great place if you want some peace and quiet and a breathtaking view. It’s a must see! Tank Hill is one of San Francisco’s secret treasures. Its name comes from the Clarendon Heights Water Tank built in 1894 by the Spring Valley Water Company to store drinking water pumped from Laguna Honda.

The hill’s rich native plant community contains larval food plants for endangered butterflies as well as habitat for garter snakes, alligator lizards, western meadow larks, kestrals and hawks. The spring wildflower show is one of the city’s most spectacular sights as the hill changes colors from yellow in March, to purple in April, to pink in May. Tank Hill is a fragmented natural habitat, meaning that it is an island of natives surrounded by an ocean of exotic plants.

Tank Hill San Francisco is just a few miles away from the Adante Hotel at Union Square in San Francisco. Book directly on the Hotel’s Website for the lowest possible rates: http://www.adantehotel.com/reservations
