“awesome gardens”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

The Yerba Buena Gardens are just gorgeous. THe open green space was full of people enjoying the sunshine, and the Martin Luther King fountain was a joy. I love that you can walk behind the fountain and read his speech. There is an infinity type fountain along the top that is great to sit neat for pictures. THe flowers were all in bloom--loved the azaleas! THe shaking man statue was neat too...all in all this is a beautiful place to visit.

First experience watching Ti Chi in the mornings. So peaceful. Watching the elders of the community walking laps inspired me. Many colorful flowers. Right next to a central street so easy to get to.

“If you are staying in the SOMA area, Yerba Buena is a must”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We have a 10 year old, so there is so much to do here. Walk around, see the water feature, go to the Metreon Theater, cross the bridge to go to the Yerba Buena Center with outdoor playground, bowling and ice skating. Especially since the SF Moma is closed for renovations, this place is nice to have.

“Peaceful place to sit”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

I had a couple of strolls round here during the day. It's a good place to sit & have a coffee & sandwich. The waterfall at night is all lite up but it seems to become the night shelter for the vagrants of which there is plenty of in this area after dark.

“Delightful Place to Sit and Watch”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Last day of November and glorious sunshine not to be missed. We walked to these gardens on Mission, very near to Union Square although you would never know it from the ambience. A truly delightful place to sit and watch the world go past with a number of cafe facilities nearby. A special feature within the gardens is the impressive waterfall structure dedicated to Martin Luther King and quoting a number of facts and speech excerpts related to his life. Many families were enjoying the day and we enjoyed being part of the general happiness.
