Golden Gate Park comes across as being like Centrakl Park in New York but on a smaller scale. We used Public Transportation, Bus #5, from downtown and got off around 8Th Avenue. Even though it was raining we spent about 2 or 3 hours at the DeYoung Museum and then about 1 hour at the Japanese Tea Garden- having lunch... More

I have been here many times for many reasons. Walked from the Haight to the ocean. Visited the Botanical Gardens. Visited the DeYoung Museum. Played sports. This is a fantastically beautiful jewel in the midst of San Francisco. Lots of beautiful flowers and trees. If you're coming to San Francisco, remember to wear flowers in your hair. Academy of Sciences.... More

While it was raining on the day we went out we enjoyed the hiking through the park! Coming from Minnesota in January we wanted to spend as much time as possible outside, so despite the 50 degree weather we loved it. The trails were well maintained and a lot to see. Definitely recommend!

There are acres of picnic grounds and hiking paths. An outstanding rhododendron grove dazzles when in bloom.There is a Japanese tea garden and the De Young art museum nearby. The Academy of Sciences and a band stand where concerts are given free of charge draw large numbers of visitors. There are more attractions in addition to what I've mentioned here... More

Beautiful park, lots to see. Would recommend renting bikes to ride around the park and see all the different spots and even make your way down to the beach. The gallery and museum in the park are a must visit also.

This park is a bit of a hidden gem, and not too well advertised. I would rate it as one of the worlds great city parks. There is so much to see in the park. You could need 2 to 3 days here. Our 12 year old son ended up in the tennis club, playing table tennis alongside elderly Chinese... More
