- Golden Gate ParkOct 20, 2013
Golden Gate Park is like a mini city in itself, in that it is chock full of so many different attractions and areas, each with their own unique feel, that you could spend a day here and never get bored. I used to run down JFK Dr. every morning, which cuts through the park on the North side and down to the beach. I would pass the Rose Garden, lawn bowling, the frisbee golf course, the ACTUAL golf course, Spreckels Lake (where old men like to take their motor boats and sail boats out for a spin), the buffalo farm, the lighthouse....it's just a wonderful, relaxing park to take your time in. The space between the de Young and the Academy of Sciences has an art show every weekend, and if you go down JFK Dr. towards the Conservatory of Flowers on Saturday there are always a bunch of people jamming out and dancing on their roller skates.
One note: Do not walk through here alone at night. There are a lot of homeless people that call the park their home, and it's generally not a safe place to be after dark. Other than that...enjoy!

It's the green space that lets the rest of San Francisco breathe. Ah, that's better! Art and natural science museums, biking paths, a small pond for rowing boats, a Japanese garden, art-deco buildings... it's enough to fill a whole day.

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.

The Golden Gate Park is right in the center of the City - a huge, sprawling park dotted with trails, ponds, manicured gardens, museums and even a dutch windmill. Lots to do. On weekends they close the main road to traffic so bikers and roller bladers can take to the streets.

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.

A great place to spend your day outdoors. There are a variety of things to do every day and you will come across hundreds of diverse friends all around you. They host several concerts a year such as the FREE Alice Radio concerts in the summer! Golden Gate Park has museums, a carousel, and a conservatory of flowers to view and bring kids to! If you just want to take a peaceful walk and be with nature, this is definitely the right spot for you!

Extending from Haight to Ocean beach, this is the spot to take a bike ride (especially on Sundays when the roads are closed to cars). Rent a paddle boat on Stow Lake, check out the musuems, and bring a picnic.

Great for families or singles.
Our favorite: Rent a bike on Stanyan St. and explore the Park all the way to the ocean... fun, peaceful and beautiful once you pass the initial tourist traps.
Suggestion: take a quick detour out of the park to Andronicos’ Deli, 1200 Irving St., and buy deli food to take back into the park… it is a quick and easy picnic.
Don't forget your sweater - San Francisco is always cool!
