“Gorgeous setting with spectacular San Francisco views!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Most folks come here for the very scenic golf course or the Legion of Honor Museum. The latter is a San Francisco gem, by the way. The former is often dismissed by golfers as spotty, but the course layout and landscaping is magnificent!
The real beauty here for locals and tourists alike is the spectacular views all the way around of San Francisco, Marin Headlands and the Golden Gate, Pacific Ocean.
It's free to come here, park and walk all around, as many do, but parking gets tied up pretty early.
This is an historic site of the Spreckles Mansion, and even if you don't go into the museum itself, the building mimics the Louvre in Paris, and you can walk into the courtyard.
Good food in the Museum Cafe, by the way.

“Evening walk”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

This park is beautiful and needs to be seen at day and evening as the light can make it look so different.

“Beautiful park and views”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We walked the long trail to Eagle's Point and out the other end of the park to the residential area of El Camino Del Mar. The views were outstanding. We would recommend a stop at this park to anyone visiting the SF area. One note of caution: We parked our rental SUV (the only vehicle they had available) in the lot across from the visitor's center and returned to find the window broken out and one of our bags missing. We would recommend not leaving anything of value in your car or letting anyone see you put things in your trunk!

“The walk along the ocean”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

The walk from Point Lobos and the Sutro Baths to the Legion of Honor is gorgeous. the views are lovely and often there is a good art exhibit at the Legion of Honor. You can eat lunch in the cafe there or outside on the terrace.
