Best Place To See Totem Poles 

Cayuga Park

Once upon the 1980s, Filipino emigrant Demetrio Braceros (known as Demi by friends and locals) was entrusted with the care of Cayuga Park, a seedy sump of public space that had fallen into disrepair. With great love and hope, Demi transformed the space into a whimsical experience filled with lush gardens and over 300 imaginative wooden sculptures and totem poles, most of which were carved from tree stumps native to the site. One of San Francisco's more unusual gems, the park is located in the Outer Mission, just off of Interstate 280 beneath the BART tracks. Demi's creations show the influence of their creator's homeland, his imagination, and the spritely spirits of the park itself.
