Yerba Buena Gardens Reviews & Ratings
One of the things I like so much about San Francisco is the prevalence of public parks and open spaces. This is a beautiful spot in the middle of SoMa where you can escape for a bit or just soak up some green amidst the hotels and high rises. It's also bordered by several eateries and within a block of several more, so a really nice spot for lunch. Not too overrun with tourists and never had any issue with panhandlers, so in general I would say that it's very safe and free of drama.
Small park with too many people seeking shade and green. No place for kids to unwind and play. My son carried baseball bat and bowl and unfortunately was sad as there was no place to play. Park ends before it starts. Then there are parking issues, one ways to trouble you. Falling water is treat and is a distraction for kids in good sense. We liked Martin Luther kings writings on the wall. Will keep your 5-8 year old excited. A bit surprised with 5 star reviews. Overall disappointing!!!
AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL PLACE. Perfect date, family and solo spot. Great for all people. Bring a picnic blanket or just relax on the cement or grass or seats. Its so peaceful in a loud busy city like SF.
Oasis in the city!!! This is a very relaxing open green space complemented with a water falls that adds to a more soothing ambiance. There are some restaurants around or just grab something to go and bring it here. If you’re lucky, catch a free performance.
Super fun place for the kids. My two year old son loved the park. The park floor is that spongy/rubber material so he didn't hurt himself even when he fell. A lot of different slides and organized by age groups. Well maintained
