There is so much in this park, it would take days to do it all, get a map and check it out. Many building to see and different gardens

I severely underestimated the size of this park and did not allow adequate time to see all of the sights. We saw the Japanese Tea Garden and did not want to pay to enter the California Academy of Sciences. I was pregnant during our visit and walking the park was really out of reach. We stayed around the CAS and... More

The park is great for a walk through, lots to see and do although disappointed they have started charging for some areas such as the Japanese gardens. The park is about 3 miles long but worth the walk through to see the Pacific Ocean, free shuttle buses in the park or ride the bus back into downtown San Francisco. Segway,... More

Spent a Saturday afternoon at the park. Took a hop-on, hop-off bus then walked in and enjoyed the serenity within a busy city. Although there was a steady rain, we walked as much as we could viewing several ponds, statutes and enjoying the peacefulness. Many runners even in the rain. Due to the rain we skipped the tea garden, but... More

We took an Uber to the park & were dropped off by 9th street. We enjoyed wandering for several hours through sculpture gardens and walk paths. We were disappointed that the Botanical gardens were free to residents but not to guests. Lily pond and Strawberry Hill were very fun hikes. Overall a fun way to spend an afternoon away from...

Beautiful park with lots to do. Rent a bicycle so you can see most of it in a timely manner. You can even ride down to the beach with a bike rental in the park.

We stopped by on a tour, it was ok, nothing too special. That being said it was winter so it would probably be a bit different in summer.
