McLaren Lodge in Golden Gate Park, 501 Stanyan Street (and Fell)
FREE – Happening rain or shine

In 1929, John McLaren, the grandfather of Golden Gate Park and San Francisco’s first park superintendent, began a holiday tradition of lighting trees along a mile-long stretch of Fell Street that ended in front of McLaren Lodge, his home at the time.

McLaren Lodge is located at 501 Stanyan Street (and Fell), in Golden Gate Park and is accessible by MUNI via the 5 Fulton, 21 Hayes, 33 Stanyan, 71 Noriega and N Judah lines.

You may also bring a new, unwrapped toy for the San Francisco Police Department’s Annual Toy Drive. Donation bins will be located at this event.
