San Francisco Botanical Garden - Review

It took a while to build this collection of 50,000 plants over 55 acres. The original plans were laid out in the 1880s, but planting didn’t begin until 1937. The collection is divided into Mediterranean, tropic, temperate, and specialty sections. Especially cool are the Moon viewing garden, the ancient plant garden, and the Andean Cloud Forest. This is not the most advertised of San Francisco’s attractions, but you’d be remiss to miss it. It’s easily one of the most diverse botanical museums in the world.

  • Great to hear the pianos being played as we walked throughout the gardens doing this special 12 days. Sometimes you'd hear more than one piano at a time but the different tunes never clashed. In fact, we couldn't help smiling and dancing to the rhythms. Very nice! The pianos being played within the gardens added to the experience of viewing the flowers and plants, which were great too. We followed our ears...drawn to the next piano being played.

  • This place is really cool. They have sections from around the world. It was so cool to see redwoods and a huge section of succulents I had never seen before. We were able to take lovely pictures. Make sure you get a map so that you see the whole garden. For residents it is free! I would be on that lawn every weekend reading.

  • Beautiful! We loved visiting here. We went first thing in the morning before it was hot or crowded and loved it. All the exhibits are thoughtful and mesmerizing. I can't wait to come back. We spent about 2 hours there but it could have easily been longer. It cost $8 but we thought it was worth it. I have so many beautiful pictures.

  • This area is really nice if you are going for a picnic or are renting bikes to travel around. We took our stroller and it took everywhere to go places! It was a pretty place but the admission fee was super lame. I definitely wouldn’t pay to go in again.

  • A great place for taking in natural beauty and taking a nap. Don’t forget to go to the historical walk and take the time to read the educational placards. They say they have docent tours at 1:30 but don’t count on it. It’s a beautiful place. Don’t forget to go to the bamboo garden and be careful for the bee hive in the iconic tree at the entry way! Oh yeah pause at the low lying rock garden to the left of the entrance. It’s a super cool story.
