Lovely place. "Adorei" as we say in Brazil but I was lucky to be there on a day when entry was free. Otherwise, a visit to the Golden Gate Park with its undoubted but expensive attractions - like the De Young or Japanese Garden or...More

On a sunny, windy day it was great to walk through these themed gardens. A very large array of plants from around the world. And a nice combination of paved and chipped paths so that people of all mobility levels can enjoy the gardens.

The Garden is definitely a place not to be missed when visiting San Francisco. There was much to see as you walked the trails in the various sections. Suggest coupling this visit with the Japanese Tea Garden just across the road.
