"Yerba Buena" Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Tip by goingsolo

  San Francisco
by goingsolo

Yerba Buena is a performing arts center and small park located near Union Square in the Financial District. There are plenty of art exhibits which change every so often and different performances which take place here, in addition to an IMAX theatre. I didn't have enough time to take any of that in, but did enjoy a walk around the gardens.

The park is a splash of green in a city where greenery is often lacking. Its also a nice spot to pass time away from the crowds. In the early mornings, groups of Asian women and others congregate in the gardens and perform Tai Chi exercises.
