This was a fun visit! The tulips were in bloom and they had done an excellent job of cleaning the park up for spring. I took a friend there for the first time and they were very impressed. The tulips were gorgeous!

This was a wonderful stop on our trek through the Golden Gate Park. It's just one of the many hidden gems that is free to the public. Clean, comfortable, and peaceful, this garden is a must see.

Lovely windmill and gardens but don't leave ANYTHING in your car. Broken window and bags gone in less than 10 min. Avoid parking next to the hedge.

Beautiful place to see flowers and a windmill. Great for a walk around or just sit on one of the benches. It could be a nice to bring a picnic lunch too.

San Francisco Golden Gate Park has two windmills; the north windmill is in the Queen Wilhemina Garden. It is a small but delightful "locals" area of Golden Gate Park, although all can definitely visit. I could easily find free parking right beside the garden mid...More

Stopped late Saturday afternoon to see this large Dutch windmill in the garden. There were many flowers blooming around the garden, which included red tulips. Very impressive windmill, suppose the season we visited is not a time for abundant flower blooms. Nevertheless, as Midwesterners, we...More
