We just wanted some sun and fresh air. We walked through some forest with towering redwoods, checked out the rose garden, the Japanese tea-garden and we were going to go into the Botanical gardens but we balked at the cost, especially after payment to enter...More

This is a "must see" place and there is so much to see and do! Made me wish I lived in San Francisco - I would be there every chance I got. We barely skimmed the surface due to our time constraints. So we ended...More

Well worth visiting and it is near the Cliff House Restaurant just be careful to keep you eye on your vehicle. Ours was broken into when we were only away for about 10 minutes. The park is still excellent just be careful.

Stop in the Japanese gardens, at the botanic or at the lake. Walk in those huge trees and trails and see the animals around the area. Go when is sunny or gets really cold and avoid to be there at sunset

Golden Gate Park is huge and lovely. You could easily spend a weekend here. Most people visit the eastern end, near the Haight/Ashbury district. Lots to see and do there: two museums, the Conservatory of Flowers, Hippie Hill percussion concerts, lawn bowling, and an excellent...More

The main attractions all had steep entrance fees. We felt cheated after our visit to the Japanese tea garden and the poor, yet pricey options available for lunch. Headed to the children's play area believing things could only get better... so disappointing for us all,...More

The park is home to an art museum, science museum, teahouse, bison paddock, and numerous walking trails. On 4th of July weekend, the community orchestra played a free concert at the bandstand in the park.

Questions & Answers
Is it safe to visit GGP? I’ve become concerned about going to GGP, after reading numerous negative reviews here on TA. Some travellers have described it as unsavoury, dangerous, dirty or filled with drug addicts and homeless people! My wife and I are in our late 50’s and we will be visiting SF for the first time in Sept from Australia. We’re not exactly adventure tourists who can be ready for anything! My wife especially is quite nervy, so although I have included GGP as one of the places to see, I’m now beginning to wonder whether we should just drop it. I would however like to go to the De Young Museum, so maybe we should just visit that one place and then get out. The day we plan to visit is a Sat. Not sure if that makes it better or worse? Any tips to stay safe if we do go? Thanks
