too heavy to steer in the traffic and very expensive for what they are! Rent bikes better, the gardens are beautiful, so much to see.

There is always something to do in Golden Gate Park. The good news was the recent rains really boosted all the foliage. The downside - all the locals were there on the weekend enjoying the same spectacle - parking was a challenge

Love this area for its diversity - pretty much like San Fran itself it offers something for everyone. Enjoy a stroll through the many pathways, check out the AIDS memorial grove, savour the beauty of the Conservatory of Flowers and currently their butterfly house which is awe inspiring. An oasis in the bustle of the city and only a short... More

Visiting the park on a sunny day was the perfect way to get some exercise (along with tons of other people), view the bridge in a leisurely fashion, and then relax along the shore to catch your breath.

I didnt know about this place until I looked it up on Trip Adviser. Within this park are a whole range of other hidden treasures such as the Japanese tea gardens. It is stunning. Most of the hop on hop off buses will drop you off here. I would spend an entire day here though

Our last afternoon in SF we decided to try Golden Gate Park. We were not disappointed.

Lots of bike rental places around, but very few designated bike paths. Bikes mostly share the road with cars and there are A LOT of cars. Worse than comparable sized parks in North America and Europe.

Was hesitant about visiting. Entrance fees were involved. But it was worth it. The main park itself was beautiful, as was the external surrounding the park. It was money well spent @usd8/pp!
