Golden Gate Park

The park is very relaxing. Also, a place to see nature. You can swim there is a beach there, people were enjoying them self of all ages. However, I didn't not swim. Enjoyable.

It was nice to feel like we were getting out of the city. We didn't go in the conservatory, and we came close to (but didn't try) getting in a boat on the lake, but the walk through the trees, around the water, and then to the cafe was a lovely break en route to the golden gate bridge (we... More

Great place for anyone! If you have a family with young children, there are several playgrounds for them. For groups there is a Frisbee throwing activity area. Beautiful botanical garden, with spectacular types of flowers and plants from all over the planet. Yes there are more types of flower than roses and tulips :P There is the separate Japanese Tea...

We mainly drove around the park, but it was nice to see green space in a concrete city. It was obvious that many of the locals utilize the park. Park wisely and put all valuables out of site as we did see two vehicles with smashed out windows.

Great park for outdoor activities. A lot of trees, nice environment and free of charge. Walking, biking, yoga, picnic... Perfect for any activity in sunny days. There are other actions such California Academy of Science (it's paid). Pretty cool! I recommend.

We visited Golden Gate Park specifically for our 2-year-old son to give him a break from all the driving we had been doing. The carousel was wonderful, well maintained, with many beautiful creatures to ride from the typical horses to lions, tigers, and ostriches. The park catered for all ages and there were many different options for play, from climbing... More

I should have planned a whole day at Golden Gate park. We only visited one end but that was fantastic. We visited the Academy of science and the Japanese Tea Garden. As a science teacher I could have happily spent the whole day there. I was so impressed with the set up. If you are going - make sure to... More
