“A wonderful park with so much to offer”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This was our first visit to Golden Gate Park and we were thoroughly impressed by the large variety of things to do. We enjoyed the flower conservatory, the De Young Museum, and the Japanese Tea Garden - all of which require admission fees. Even just walking in the park, among the greenery and flowers, is a refreshing experience on its own. Well worth spending a day.

“HUGE park, so much left to explore”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Have spent many hours at this park but have only been able to explore a very minor part of the area. Concerts, museums, running trails, there is something for everyone!

“Huge park with lots to do”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This park is actually really wide, spanning from Ocean Beach all the way into the middle of San Francisco. The park is sub-divided into activity-areas, for example: a disc golf, hiking, boating, golfing and museums! The centre of the park contains the de Young art museum and the California Academy of Sciences. The park is very walkable and bike friendly, and all bike traffic is segregated from automobile traffic.

“Love this place! So beautiful.”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This park is huge! And so cool. You could spend a week just walking around in it. Lots going on there, like softball games, or kickball games, concerts in the summer, and yoga classes, Ive seen alot there. But mostly its just a beautiful park with forests of tall eucalyptus trees. Lots of paths to explore.
