Great place to relax and enjoy the people. This was my introduction to "Bubble Soccer" in the park and it was very interesting. They seem to enjoy bumping into each other more than scoring. FUN!

On our last full day in the city, we took the electric bus out to this beautiful park. Bigger than Central Park in New York, it was peaceful especially in the botanic gardens, even though there are cross-roads across the main park.

Was nice to walk around here in the sun. Most things charged 9 dollars to get in but the De Young museum had a viewing tower that gave great views of the city - which could be accessed for free!

Rent bikes, visit the museums and arboretum, or relax on the grass. Perfect with kids and a respite from City activity. Lots of homeless on the Haight-Ashbury side, but not so many deeper into the park.

Loved this beautiful park. We really enjoyed it although a slight disappointment was the entrance fees to most of the attractions there - great FREE view from the De Young Tower. San Francisco should be rightly proud of this parkland

Golden Gate Park was much bigger than I expected. Accordingly, there was a lot more to do and see than i thought. The entire park is very well kept and clean. My family and I started out at the old Dutch windmill. Much bigger than...More

Golden Gate Park is a gorgeous area with lots of different gardens for families to explore. There is a Chinese garden that I think is free before noon but a charge to get in after that. Also a playground for the kids. My 9 and...More

If you just want to walk around I would say it can be a day's work, when you walk relaxed. But it us better to meet the sight seeing points inside the park.
