Best Pumpkin Patch for City Kids: Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch

For city families who want the traditional pumpkin patch experience without trekking out of the city, head on over to Clancy’s Pumpkin Patch in the Inner Sunset. Open yearly since 1979 (it was the city’s first pumpkin patch), Clancy’s offers pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, along with gourds, corn stalks, and Indian corn.

Bonus: Free parking (yes, free parking). Pets are welcome in the patch as long as they can be carried throughout their visit to the patch.

Located: 1620 7th Avenue. Open daily 9:00 am – 10:00 pm through Halloween.
