Pok?mon Nests in San Francisco Bay Area

Hey guys! I know this will only be relevant to a few of you, but I'm hoping to kick off a few community-sourced city guides for Pok?mon Go spawning nests. I'll be putting one together for San Francisco, but if you'd like to do one for your city, let me know, and we can make sure your thread gets the right visibility and support from the Mobile Nations community managers.

Doing this is tricky, since a lot of people have relied on the Pok?mon API, and with spawning locations changing, it's hard to figure out how much of that data is old or new, but I'm gonna do my best here. What I'm pulling from here is recent, anecdotally-confirmed spots on Reddit and Facebook. I'm personally verifying the stops I can, and will update this if I notice something becomes inaccurate. Hopefully this can be a handy resource for locals and visitors alike. Please note, the asterisks indicate Pok?mon that spawn in those locations even though they are not nests.
