“Great day out”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We hired bikes and rode through all the way to the beach and back, was a really great ride not too many hills and lots to see along the way. Museums in the park are rather pricey but if its a sunny day id recommend visiting the Japanese Tea Gardens and Botanical gardens which are worth a walk around.

“walked across the park”

“Peaceful”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We took a bus from the Golden gate bridge to the park area.
It's a beautiful place. It's very beautiful and it's also very popular for sports (running, biking).
The lake area is gorgeous. It has lots of ducks and birds.
We visited the Tea Garden and then we walked to Haight neighborhood. We wanted to visit some museums around but they were closed at Sunday morning.

“Beautiful park in the middle of a busy city”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

It is so green and so beautiful. Very clam and quiet when off the car routes. It is even more beautiful when you are in the crazy city traffic and of the sudden you land into this green paradise. Great museums all in one park.
