We walked the whole park and my gosh there is a lot of park. Plenty to see, most you have to pay for which is quite disappointing. The Japanese gardens and museums all charge a fee. The bison fields are a site to see and there are squirrels everywhere - they are so cute! Massive park, prepare yourself for a... More

Beautiful green space a world away from the hustle of the city. Lots of beautiful trails, trees, and it was so green in January. Be prepared to walk-like miles. The Japanese Tea Garden was superb, but do note you must pay to get in. If you're a SF resident, bring your ID for a discount. There is a shuttle that... More

We came here and enjoyed the Japanese gardens and the botanical gardens. There are also 2 museums here. There was a small art fair when we went. It's really nice to walk in this park. It's really big. Almost like Central Park. Worth spending a day here

It's great place to visit with different museum ( The Young, Academy of Sciences, Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, San Francisco Botanical Garden) also if you like to walk or run it's great place to go.

I was amazed at the fast size and beautiful grounds. There were so many people enjoying the many areas of the park, but it was never crowded. The relaxing afternoon we spent here will never be forgotten.

...you can redeem the Uber ride from across the Bay by strolling through Golden Gage Park as the sun lengthens the shadows of the rhododendrons and fountains. Listen to a sax player amplify her blues through a tunnel. Catch rollerbladers and old-school roller skaters grooving to house music. Smell the flowers at the Conservatory...and then realize that you want another... More

Beautiful park. Many places to walk. We stopped and parked at the visitor Center across from the ocean to watch exceptionally high surf. Beautiful mosaics in the center.

One of the best public spaces I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. There is such a variety of attractions, and the park is so well laid out and cared for, it's fantastic. Wherever you are in the city, go out of your way to see the Japanese Tea Garden.

If you've been to Golden Gate Park, you'll appreciate that it is one of the most enjoyable, peaceful and relaxing of San Francisco's treasures. On this trip, we went to the park's Japanese Gardens, and rediscovered how enchanting and tranquil we found the Japanese-themed structures/buildings and garden paths. Be sure to check out the Gift Shop, as there are all... More

We had never been to the park before and could not believe that SF had such a great park! Our bus tour took us thru it and it was awesome!
