  Yerba Buena Gardens
by nomadig

Yerba Buena Gardens is a miniscule park near the busy shopping district and Union Square. The park is surrounded by tall buildings, but still it is able to calm you down. In the mornings, you can see Chinese people practising taiji on the park.

The park is especially beautiful during springtime, when cherry trees are blossoming and delicate white flowers sport in several trees around the park.

The park has some grass to lay on, and there are a few cafés around it to buy something to eat. Bring a good book with you and before sitting down, remember to check that the grass is not wet -- it is sprayed out every morning to endure better the heat of the California sun.
