I wouldn't go out of my way to see these gardens but if in this side of San Francisco it's cool to look up and be surrounded by the big buildings. It's free to the public and a pretty space that sometimes also has art...More

a nice little green island in the midst of town, quiet and nice - a good spot for relaxing, viewing people doing tai-chi , surrounded by museums and galleries

This was once part of San Francisco's skid row, but years after the bulldozer and urban renewal, it's now a lovely and lively garden surrounded by cultural institutions. Perfect place for a picnic, or just to rest your feet.

The Yerba Buena Gardens are located above the Moscone North convention center so it is a peaceful and relaxing getaway during breaks in the conference. The MLK memorial is here as well as green space, flower gardens and a small restaurant.

A great place to hang out and read or watch people. Some grass to lay in to get some sun, but most concrete and some water features. Clean and not vandalized, so I liked it. It says no pets allowed, which seems odd.

A very good example to make a cultural space , showing nature with their gardens and integrated to classic ancient arquitecture. Near Moscone center . You can walk you can eat a meal or just enjoy the view

The Garden was an unexpected refuge from the downtown bustle. Beautiful winding walkways, manicured lawns, a moving tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., imaginative play spaces for young and old, ample seating for conversation or contemplation, and a nearby food court or more upscale...More

I don't see what the fuss is about. Too much concrete, too small to begin with and the part that is grass is obstructed by police barricades (have no idea why?!?) I would say it's a nice spot to take your lunch or to walk...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
