Beautiful Windmill and gardens in a very surprising location! Saw it from the road while visiting the Baths and Land's End. Great little find!

Golden Gate Park is loaded with little attractions that most people never see. This is one of them. This is the northernmost of the two windmills at the west end of GG Park and it comes complete with a lovely flower garden. Tulips just like...More

It's quite a trek to the northwest corner of Golden Gate Park, even by car. Reading the reviews, I was really looking forward to seeing and photographing the tulips visitors had seen only a couple of weeks ago (since I still haven't made it to...More

This was a fun visit! The tulips were in bloom and they had done an excellent job of cleaning the park up for spring. I took a friend there for the first time and they were very impressed. The tulips were gorgeous!

This was a wonderful stop on our trek through the Golden Gate Park. It's just one of the many hidden gems that is free to the public. Clean, comfortable, and peaceful, this garden is a must see.

Lovely windmill and gardens but don't leave ANYTHING in your car. Broken window and bags gone in less than 10 min. Avoid parking next to the hedge.

Beautiful place to see flowers and a windmill. Great for a walk around or just sit on one of the benches. It could be a nice to bring a picnic lunch too.

The garden is dedicated to former Netherlands queen Whilamena, and it is beautiful. Parking at mid-morning on Sunday was no problem. Giant tulips were abundant and the windmill was fascinating. The flowers are beautiful and it's an amazing setting. A peaceful and relaxing place to...More

San Francisco Golden Gate Park has two windmills; the north windmill is in the Queen Wilhemina Garden. It is a small but delightful "locals" area of Golden Gate Park, although all can definitely visit. I could easily find free parking right beside the garden mid...More
