Golden Gate Park needs to be on your must visit list when you're in San Francisco. It's very large, with many things to see and do. At the very least take a walk in some part of the park.

Choosing how to spend your time in SFO is difficult enough, however if you do have time, stop by and take in the fresh air and the surrounding beauty.

Beautiful large park. Golf, art museum, Presidio, and gardens, and views of Golden Gate and city. Nearby shops and restaurants.

Don't make the same mistake as me with Golden Gate Park! I went there at the end of my day in Haight Ashbury and really didn't leave anywhere near enough time to take any of it in before dusk fell. It;'s HUGE and there's an...More

This is a wonderful park in constant use by residents as well as a draw for tourist longing for some physical activity in a lovely setting. It's so large that it never seems crowded under normal circumstances. I understand they sometimes have concerts here and...More

GG park has something for everyone! From the Japanese gardens to a great play area for children and everything in between! We love visiting the park when in San Francisco.

Awesome man made Park. The story behind its creation is fascinating. Lots to see here. From disc golf to flowers to statues.

When I used to live in San Fran we went to the Strawberry Hill to rent boats and paddled around it. It was super fun.

We went here one of our last days in the city, and it was beautiful. My daughter loved the carousel, and loved playing on the playground that’s right next door. You can rent bikes here, all day I believe. Great little place to spend some...More

This park might be worth going to if you stay away from the bicycle vendor at the foot of the park, who chased me down after I decided I did not want to rent two bikes after all. He started screaming at me that I...More

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
