Took my girls to see golden gate park. Staff were friendly and inviting. Were lucky enough to be there for the 50th anniversary of the "Summer of Love" festival. Good music.....interesting sites......and enough second hand smoke to film a cheech and chong movie!!!!

We had been here a previous visit and enjoyed some space and greenery a after being in central SF. Picnicked and then strolled the Japanese Tea Garden and the Flower Conservatory. Each charged $8 per adult which seemed a little pricey but each was worth...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
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
