Went to see the Japanese tea garden, but it was too late when we finally found it. We still had a great time driving, and walking around the little lake with the waterfall, ducks, and geese. When I return for a visit, I will make it back to explore more of the Golden Gate Park. It was a wonderful respite... More

Beautiful park and there are two excellent museums. I only had time to go to the de Young museum of Art but the Academy of Sciences is supposed to be amazing

So much to do and not enough time. We opted to visit the botanical gardens and they were stunning. As we arrived a free 45 tour was about to start so we opted to take part. Julie our guide was great and took us on a whistle stop tour and really was a bundle of knowledge. Afterwards, we had a... More

This is a great place to relax after the hustle and bustle of San Francisco's busy streets. Lots of places to walk and relax. We didn't see everything that is there, but what we did see was very restful

This a is great park in the middle of San Fransisco. And it is huge. A very pleasant walk. The de Young Gallery is worth a visit.

This park is enormous and a bit off the beaten path on the western side of town. It's several miles long and includes a Conservatory of Flowers, Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Garden and a whole lot of green space. Music, hippies, picnics, runners, families with young children? We visited late afternoon and it had... More

The park itself was amazing. Very big and lots to see and do. Big downside was the shuttle buses. The signs and website all say 15 minutely shuttle buses around the park but we waited over an hour before calling a taxi. Waste of time and very annoying. Then we found out it doesnt actually do go all the designated... More

The Japanese Tea Garden is the most beautiful Garden in the golden gate park. I visited more than 30 years ago and still as beautiful and romantic as ever. Entry fee is required 8 $ per person. The gift shop and the cafe is very nice. As you wonder around the garden you can't help not to see squirrels wondering... More

Breathtaking views of the bridge, and a memorial of the USS San Francisco. Lush plantlife and lots of walkways and seating we stayed for a couple of hours because it was so beautiful.
