“LOTS TO SEE AND DO BUT BE PREPARED TO GET LOST”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

My wife and I have visited the Park several times over the years and there are several attractions to see/visit while you are there (you can't do them all in one day). However, the street signs are few and far between and it is very easy to get lost while driving or walking around in the Park. I highly recommend allowing plenty of time if you have a set time you want to arrive at a certain attraction as every time we go to the Park we get lost for at least 10 - 15 minutes (sometimes longer). Street parking can also be at a premium if you want to park for free. (You can pay to park near one of the museums.) It is best to have a good map of the area and don't be afraid to stop and ask for directions if you have to.

“Lovely Conservatory”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

The beautiful and historic Conservatory is worth visiting. It is filled with tropical plants and butterflies in one area. Really lovely. Near the Gold Gate Park are the Mosaic Steps- also worth finding if you have the time. The park itself is relatively peaceful - lots of people enjoying the sunshine away from the hustle of the city.

“Great Place to spend time.”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

There is so much to see and do, even at this time of year. You should allow at least three or four hours for your visit and that still may not be enough.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

The Japanese Tea Garden is worth the price of admission. If gardens aren't your thing, The de Young Museum and the Steinhart Aquarium are close by. The Hop on/off bus provides easy access.
