“Stop for a picture with Karl the Fog”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Awesome spot to grab the oh so necessary picture of the Golden Gate and Carl the fog. There will be lots of people and limited parking, but well worth the trouble on your trip to San Fran,

“Japanese Tea Garden”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

This was the area we focused on and it was well worth it. It was very peaceful and well maintained. Even a short walk through is worth the trip.

“Something for Everyone”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Science, fine art, windmills, a tea garden and buffalo all in one spot? You need more than one day to see Golden Gate park properly. Children will enjoy the old fashion merry-go-round while romantic couples need to visit Shakespeare's rose garden then head to the Beach Chalet for drinks at sunset.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

The park is very vast but we just spent a day walking though it, there was an oriental garden and a lake and many squirrels, you don't have to pay to get in. Worth a visit
