Sister to New York’s Central Park, this park just might have more to boast about than it’s northern counterpart. It’s creation was a strenuous and long project taking almost over 10 years before it grew into it’s morden look. Over the years, various additions have only enriched every visitor’s experience here. These include the Music Concourse (a scenic, open air plaza cum concert ground), the De Young museum of Fine Arts, the Academy of Sciences (the world’s greenest museum), a beautiful 5 acre Japanese Tea Garden, a Conservatory of Flowers, the AIDS Memorial Grove, the Polo Fields and a number of windmills. It’s like stepping into a different world. Make sure you’ve checked out before hand any and all events that might be happening here.

WOW is the only word to describe this amazing park. I only wished something like this existed in Miami. There is so much to explore and see, it would easily take you a day or two to truly see it all. So many trails, so many landmarks, and so much nature. It is so tranquil and relaxing through the majority of the park. Natives to San Francisco truly have a gem here with the Golden Gate Park. Being able to drive in and around the park also makes it easy to get from one end to another if you're not walking it all.
Beautiful, huge, amazing park! It is a must-see whenever one is in San Francisco, especially if you love nature. Walking around this park is relaxing, especially if you've had enough of whatever it is you came to San Francisco for. It can be quiet in the many trails around this place and a little chilly under the many tall trees. I've seen many people lay down a picnic spread with their friends and family, just enjoying themselves. There were also some people just there to read a book or have a quiet moment to themselves. My dog definitely enjoyed the long walk and we both had a nice, restful sleep that night.
There are distinctly different areas of this exceptional park to enjoy, serenity and natural beauty. As well as areas to play, and also for dogs to run around in bliss. However, bring a jacket and an umbrella, just in case you get caught in an abrupt drenching, the chill winds temperatures can plummet in a moment. No reason to catch a cold, while enjoying a sunny spring/summer day. Even sun bathers, should bring a blanket or something to cover up when it suddenly gets chilly. BTW all winter the Parks Dept had Warning Signs posted to be wary of Coyotes in the park. While this is a possibility, it is also possible that the Coyotes were actually people's dogs running around not tethered to their owners. There are a several miniature and small dog breeds that have similarities to the Coyote, in the city. As well as irresponsible bad dog owners, who routinely do not pick up after their pets, because of the common assumption that the entire park is open to dogs, unleashed. Fact of the matter is that specific areas are designated for open play spaces for canines, NOT the rest of the park. You will encounter dogs illegally not on leashes, from cute tiny pooches to huge well mannered exotic breeds, as well as large aggressive breeds customarily used for guarding and illegal fighting. Unfortunately park rangers are too few to enforce leash compliance laws in the park, watch your step, when encountering strays, especially the large breeds.
This is a beautiful park with a lot of gorgeous and unique looking flowers and plants. I will add however that you need to pay extra to enter things such as the Japanese Tea Garden, Botanical Garden, Museum etc. So just be aware of the $8/person fee for many of these places. However it is so large you can walk around and see plenty without needing to pay.
There is just so much this park has to offer! I have yet to see it all. I highly recommend the botanical gardens. It feels like you are walking through different parts of the world in such a small space! Your senses are delighted as you enjoy the beauty of this park!
