"Serenity in the city" Golden Gate Park Tip by heryanta

Golden Gate Park, San Francisco: 106 reviews and 206 photos


Golden Gate Park is a huge park located at Northwest San Francisco.

I like this park because unlike the most famous park in the US, the Central park, when you are inside you cannot see the skyscrapers and buildings in the city. Thus you can totally relax and detach from the chaos and the hectic modern living.

There are a lot to do at the park: you can of course jog, picnic and do the usual park-things but there are also attractions worth seeing including the Japanese garden, the conservatory, and de Young museum of fine arts.

I spent half a day at the park but if you like nature you can spend the whole day - a truly great way to relax and detach.

Address: Northwest San Francisco
Directions: You can take the Muni line N from Downtown (Powell) to Ocean Beach Station
