While visiting San Francisco we took the city bus to Golden Gate Park and Haight-Ashbury. It was a lovely afternoon, lots of people walking down the street, shopping, eating. We decided to walk into Golden Gate Park to see what was going on. It's a...More

Golden Gate Park is huge, and for many of us, much larger than can be managed in a single day. Close together, though, are two attractions that can be enjoyed on the same day; The Japanese Tea Garden and the California Academy of Science. Admission...More

I can spend all my time at this park, there is always something to find from museums to secluded gardens and lakes.

It was a great experience walking the Golden Gate Park, very relaxing and also there was a Peace festival going on, so I practice Yoga and learn a lot about meditation.

A fabulous park and a great contrast to the hustle and bustle of the City, we could have spent much longer than the 1/2 day we spent there. There was a free open air concert in a including a full orchestra and Opera Singers brilliantly...More

The park is free to enter. The different exhibits charge ticket prices such as gardens and museums, etc. It's huge so bring a stroller. Not many food options other than the museum cafe, so you may want to consider packing a... More
Is it safe to visit GGP? I’ve become concerned about going to GGP, after reading numerous negative reviews here on TA. Some travellers have described it as unsavoury, dangerous, dirty or filled with drug addicts and homeless people! My wife and I are in our late 50’s and we will be visiting SF for the first time in Sept from Australia. We’re not exactly adventure tourists who can be ready for anything! My wife especially is quite nervy, so although I have included GGP as one of the places to see, I’m now beginning to wonder whether we should just drop it. I would however like to go to the De Young Museum, so maybe we should just visit that one place and then get out. The day we plan to visit is a Sat. Not sure if that makes it better or worse? Any tips to stay safe if we do go? Thanks

I went there with my husband in April this year and it was totally safe. We walked loads of the trails, went to the Japanese garden and the boating lake. Didn't see any unsavoury characters.....unlike in other parts of SF
