YBG has changed dramatically in the last few years-It's only gotten better. I attended a wonderful theater production there- there is Music in the park- lovely trees and green section. Close to the MOMA, Fifth and Mission parking garage and the Bloomingdale shopping center.

Nice park area very close to Union Square. The Martin Luther King Memorial within the park is lovely, very serene. A nice place to take a little "time out" in the city centre

A nice place to chill on the grass in the summer. Next to the metreon building with AMC theatres and mostly tacky restaurants, with the exception of a super duper burger

The is a pleasant green space just opposite the SFMOMA (which is excellent). There were working fountains and not too much sign of the construction which seemed to ruin past reviewers experiences here. The memorial to Martin Luther King is the highlight of the 'gardens'....More

The size is more like a small park than a garden, but there is a nice assortment of plants, trees, and bushes to check out along with a butterfly garden. But to me, the highlight was an incredible memorial to Martin Luther King with ponds...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
