This is probably my favorite city park in the United States because of its variety and the quality of its museums and horticultural variety. My favorite activity was the time spent in the Botanical Garden, including the prehistoric plants and the fragrance garden. Every aspect,...More

We chose a great day to go through this park. I was hoping to see bison grazing but they were in a fenced section like on a farm. The gardens are beautiful though and enjoy the museums and areas.

Beautiful! Nice walking paths. A little annoying the amount of young people passing you either out and out smoking it or reeking of pot smoke. Visit the model yacht club if it’s open. If not there are likely folks sailing theirs in the little pond....More

Hiking through this park is a must while visiting SF. Glorious plants, flowers smiling at you in every corner, and the fresh air coming from the ocean- hard to beat for a city park!

The park is free to enter. The different exhibits charge ticket prices such as gardens and museums, etc. It's huge so bring a stroller. Not many food options other than the museum cafe, so you may want to consider packing a... More
Is it safe to visit GGP? I’ve become concerned about going to GGP, after reading numerous negative reviews here on TA. Some travellers have described it as unsavoury, dangerous, dirty or filled with drug addicts and homeless people! My wife and I are in our late 50’s and we will be visiting SF for the first time in Sept from Australia. We’re not exactly adventure tourists who can be ready for anything! My wife especially is quite nervy, so although I have included GGP as one of the places to see, I’m now beginning to wonder whether we should just drop it. I would however like to go to the De Young Museum, so maybe we should just visit that one place and then get out. The day we plan to visit is a Sat. Not sure if that makes it better or worse? Any tips to stay safe if we do go? Thanks

I went there with my husband in April this year and it was totally safe. We walked loads of the trails, went to the Japanese garden and the boating lake. Didn't see any unsavoury characters.....unlike in other parts of SF
