I visited the Yerba Buena Gardens in February 2019 during my visit to San Francisco. The outdoor fountains and sculptures were nice. However, they were preparing for some sort of outdoor event so I could not really get to see anything. Otherwise I am sure...More

Yerba Buena Gardens are so well keep and clean. We always enjoy the views of the Gardens and find it very relaxing as well as a nice place to meet friends.

A small green patch away from the grey concrete and busy nature of the Financial District and Market Street. Lovely water features and space to sit by the grass and enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A lovely green haven in the midst of the city, it has much to offer. In addition to the walking trails, trees and plants there is also attractive and engaging public art.

Came here before going into the SFMoMa to eat lunch. We brought food from another location. Everything was easy, walked off the lunch on the paths, admired the different types of architecture that surrounded and the people watching was great.
