This was a great place to pass through as we walked towards the beach and Golden Gate Bridge. Very pretty garden.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

A wonderful walk around the pond viewing the architecture. Lots of birds to see close up. Not too many people which is good since the paths are narrow.

“Amazing quietude and beautiful architecture!”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

I liked it so much here - I came back twice! Beautiful shots on a clear day or at night or early evening when its all lit up. Plan to explore and then just sit and enjoy the tranquility - one of the most peaceful spots in the city!! Also this attraction is only a couple blocks form the beach - a great seaside walk to Fort Point, underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Great walk, great views the whole way and the Palace is the perfect spot to do that from.
