“Always Enjoyable - Even with Some Weirdos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Golden Gate Park is huge with many interesting areas. The flowers in the garden by the windmill are beautiful, and we always enjoy the Japanese Tea Garden. There is much beautiful scenery.

The only negative this trip was a vagrant in the bushes screaming obscenities, which was a bit embarrassing since we had young children with us.

“So easy to get lost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

I really did enjoy just walking through the park. I did do the Tea Gardens which is an amazing and cost friendly experience. I also found the buffalo paddock which is kind of amazing. Highly advise just going to the park to walk through and see what you can discover.

“A park not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

The park like many across the United States was from the design firm started by Fredrick Law Olmstead. Like Central Park in New York City Golden Gate Park has matured and become a more beautiful place over time. It is a living monument.
