The Windmill is lovely when surrounded with the tulips. It's nice and relaxing to spend 15min in that little garden before reaching the beach.

I didn't expect to be floored by how awesome this location was going to be until I was there. These windmills overlooking Golden Gate Park and the Pacific is nothing sort of joyful. Plan on my engagement photos to be taken here!

No, no ticket needed to see the windmill, but you can’t actually go inside. You just take photos of it from the garden.

Not sure. Best to check with the Park Ranger's office or the local botanlogical office to see what is in bloom. There is a conservatory down the road from the tulips and they should be able to answer your question.
