People tend to check in during these times:
Golden Gate Park, located in San Francisco, California, is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres of public grounds. Configured as a rectangle, it is similar in shape but 20% larger than Central Park in New York, to which it is often compared.
A must-visit not only for its Herzog & de Meuron–designed de Young Museum but also for lesser-known gems such as the Victorian-era Conservatory of Flowers and a paddock for rare American bison.
During HSB There's paid Parking at 17th & Cabrillo at the elementary school there. It costs $30/car. 100% of the proceeds go to the elementary school. Always bring blankets, buds, booze & sun screen!
So many things to do here! Visit the bison paddock, Cal Academy of Science, deYoung Museum. Best explored by bike. Fun fact: GG Park is the largest park in America, larger than Central Park in NYC.
Looking to connect to all the great stuff at GG Park without spending a dime? The Conservatory of Flowers is free 1st Tuesday of the month and Academy of Sciences is free 3rd Wednesday of the month.
A secret gem of Golden Gate Park is the Garden of Shakespeare’s Flowers, located near the Japanese Tea Garden. Inspired by the masterworks of the famous playwright, the garden has over 200 flowers.
Huge Ginormously Beautiful Park. So much to do, to see - botanical gardens, dog parks, museums, gardens, bison, lovely cruising ride to the ocean, or anywhere in the city, esp on a Sunday - no cars.
Go to Stow Lake. You can walk around the lake, hike up the hill for beautiful city views, or rent paddle boats. There are a lot of social squirrels, which is why our dog drags us there regularly.
Golden Gate Park is recreational heaven. For bikers, walkers, runners, roller skaters, etc.: take advantage of the whole eastern half of JFK Drive when it's closed to traffic on Sundays.
Incredibly well kept park, especially in view of San Francisco's often shabby public cleaning standards. A lovely park to take in some culture or go for a long stroll or bike ride.
Largest man-made park in the world! Really cool paths in the woods (especially the unpaved ones). Many interesting sights to see and never boring, no matter how many times you've been!
One big amazing park with a great variety of activities to choose from. This past summer I was able to attend a free concert which Dash Board Confessional and Colbie Caillat performed.
If the fog hasn't rolled in, GG Park is a thing of beauty. Take a run, walk, enjoy outsidelands. IF you need to get around use UBER app. If you use the code: UBERNEF you get $20 on your first ride!
The Druids come here and arrange stones in spirals and circles. Sometimes they leave food out for the animals. Sometimes they leave candles burning and then the park gardener freaks out. Fire bad.
Next to Central Park NYC, I don't think there's any other park that comes close then Golden Gate Park. It's a beautiful oasis in a city.
Such a wonderful park! So many different places to explore-Shakespeare Garden, Botanical Garden, Japanese Tea Gardens...plus the Cal Academy of Sciences, and the DeYoung Museum.
Epic free views from the top of the deYoung tower. Then head east on the Fulton side of the park about 4 blocks and check out the roller skaters at the skate zone. Most skate steez weekend afternoons
Great place to go for a run. If you do it east to west you can end at the beach and there are plenty of sites and places to rest along the way.
Did you know this park was once filled with wild sand dunes? Now this hilly park has plenty of lakes meadows and roads to explore – as well as the world’s largest collection of orchids!
See San Francisco in a whole new light under the dome at Westfield San Francisco Centre. Our FREE 3D light spectacular starts every night at 5pm! For more info visit us on Facebook!
On Sundays, the streets in the park are closed to traffic. It's a great place to ride a bike, walk, relax outside of the conservatory of flowers, or listen to live concerts at the music concourse.
If you are looking for food nearby the academy of science, walk over to the velo rouge cafe or take the #5 a few stops inland to reach the best food ever.
lovely grove of redwoods across JFK from the backside of the deYoung Museum -- for those times you just don't want to go all the way to Muir Woods!
Stow lake is the hidden gem! Lovely place :) if nyc has central park, san francisco has golden gate park. Heart of a beautiful city.Fantastic♥
If you have small children,beware the creepy guys cruising for male prostitutes near the windmill. You do not want to walk in on anything that'll scar your kids for life.
Went to the academy of science and then walked around after. Science museum was interesting but average at some points. The park itself however is beautiful!
Take the kids for a bike ride (or go rollerskating) on a Sunday, when portions of the park are closed to cars. Or visit a world-class museum or the famed Botanical Garden.
Be careful when parking in the street. We found our glass broken and our belongings stolen yesterday in Kezar Dr, 200 meters from the police station
SO many hidden treasures in this pary. Take you're time to explore! Great views, boating, skater dance crews, concerts et al!
Great place to spend a day! Bring. Your family there's lots of space and attractions for them :)
A clean, accurate and beautiful park. Enjoy the piece of nature in the city! There are many different gardens, picnic grounds.
Need anything be said? It's simply an awesomely beautiful place to take some memorable photos in San Francisco with the timeless awesome landmark in the background.
The local neighborhood park with famous museums and attractions. Love Outside Lands in the park every year. It's bigger than Central Park.
One of my favorite parks! Museums, rose gardens, trails, Outside Lands, ponds. Great for running ( a few half marathons and marathons go through the park), walking, and biking.
Beautiful Park. It's huge. You can easily spend a whole day (or more) discovering all the little treats hidden in it.
Visit the Japanese Tea Gardens, truly lovely pathways lead you to, fragrant flowers, miniature trees and bronze statues.
Roller skating, lawnbowling, drum circles, the country's first public playground, buffalo, boating -- pick an activity and go for it!
Amex Travel tip: visit the Conservatory of Flowers to see the world’s largest collection of orchids (700+ species). The first Tuesday of every month is free!
