Just a short bus ride, but it felt a million miles from the city. The park is peaceful, diverse and a great way to spend a good part of a day. The Japanese Tea Gardens were the highlight and although there is an entrance fee, it is well worth it. The cafe in the De Young Museum provides a good... More

Lots to see and do, plenty of paths to wander and enjoy the flowering plants. Could have spent several days and not seen everything. Do not miss the California Academy of Science Museum, the de Young museum and the flower conservatory.

Gardens are pleasant to get away from the streets. We wouldn't hang around there due to druggy types. Certainly wouldn't go there at night.

Amazing Park with so much to see! Would strongly recommend hiring a bike to get around it all! Make sure you see the buffalo and get to the far side (where the windmills are) to see the beautiful coastline!

We drove across Golden Gate Bridge on Mothers Day. The sky was blue, the bay smooth and I can imagine a nicer drive in SF. A must do!

Beautiful relaxing park that stretches for miles in the City. Citizens use it for exercise. There are botanicals throughout the park that are hundreds of years old . Some have come from different countries. Different botanist have tended to what is actually a giant garden. There are statues and waterways and so on
