    I have been on for different events. Once for a college reunion and it is a great place to picnic, play sports, and drink adult beverages. Twice for concerts- its so big that its perfect for multiple stages and food venues. And once for a walk. Overall a very impressive park with a lot to do and a lot of greenery.

    Back when I lived closer to SF, whenever I needed to step out of my world Golden Gate Park always seemed like the best place to go. No matter what my mood or how much time I could afford, there was something there that was just perfect for the day; the botanical gardens or conservatory of flowers, or Japanese Tea Gardens. I love the Academy of Sciences and or the De Young. Even just wandering through the park makes a perfect little escape.

    GG Park is a truly great urban park. It's hard to believe it's all created by humans, and built on top of ancient sand dunes.

    Don't miss the arboretum. It's free and beautiful, with ecosystems from all over the world. Simply wonderful. A great place to clear your head.

    This is my favorite park in the world. It was here that I learned how to ride my bike, first drove a motorboat, fed ducks the non-Crunch Berry bits of my Cap'n Crunch, and learned all about exotic fish and gravity. Yes, this giant park has it all: several gardens, memorials, science and art museums, recreational areas and even an old carousel. It was on this carousel that I would spend my money—only 25 cents a ride at the time—in a quick succession of rides...

    This place is BIG. So big, I've been here about 4 times and I still haven't seen everything. Filled with gardens, museums, fields of green -- it's the perfect place for families as well as for any traveler who loves the outdoors.

    Lovely place to meet friends, stretch your aesthetic sense at their many museums, dine finely in the basement of the California Academy of Sciences, play in a biodome surrounded by butterflies and birds, etc. There's always something going on, be it performance art, tour groups. Impromptu sports games, you name it. Also an excellent spot for runners. Make sure you wander over to Hippie Hill if you want the full San Francisco experience, bums and all.

Description:

One hundred and fifty years ago, this 1000-acre park was a windswept sand dune. To this day, its autumnal music festival, Outsidelands, is an homage to its former moniker. These days, you'll find the same serenity with a myriad of attractions -- art museums, a Japanese tea garden, a Shakespeare garden, even a buffalo paddock. Or, get active -- hike, ride horseback, learn archery or feed ducks at any one of three ponds.
