Take the cable car up; it's a fun relic from the past and at the top you get a great view out over the city and harbor. Just get a one-way ticket as you can walk back to the city from the bottom of the garden. It's on a hillside, so it's all downhill from the cable car. Get a map from one of the friendly docents and pick a trail to follow down to the lower gardens which are the most interesting. The tree-house on the way down has facilities. The more formal gardens at the bottom are lovely, especially the rose garden. Fortunately you do not have to climb back up as there's a delightful path back to the city through an historic graveyard.
