On a real nice day of sun and warm, this can be a pretty place for an extended hang with your friends or alone.

Yes, a garden in the middle of the city, with lovely entrance ways and paths and large trees providing shade and a lovely canopy. A lovely spot to stroll and escape the city hubbub.

After being a lot of time between traffic and chaos, Golden Gate Park is an ideal place to take a break and enjoy a beautiful moment with friends and family. It's a huge green space where you can walk, jogging, ride bicycle, have a picnic, play with your dog, look at the ducks in the lake and listen jazz bands... More

The Panhandle is an interesting stretch of Golden Gate Park running between Fell and Oak streets which provides a lovely green space through nice residential neighborhoods. Great area for walking Fido or getting some exercise in nice surroundings. Not too many diversions from your purpose! Enjoy. ...

The panhandle is a nice long strip of green in the city. Perfect for a nice long walk or for taking the dog on a stroll.

We didnt walk trough it, just by car. But it was really nice, you leave the city behind and you enter this great park. You forget to be in a metropoly, it's another world. Amazing nature and trees. Then you arrive directly in the ocean!!best drive ever.

We took the cruise and there after spent some time at the park. One can view the Alcatros Island and the Golden gate from land. The sights of the roads that have steep inclines and declines shown so often in movies was nice to see in person. Different breeds of dogs can be seen . Some funny sights with them... More

Great place to walk yourself and/or your dog, but keep your eyes open as there are some unsavory types here and there.
