"relaxing" Yerba Buena Gardens Tip by mindcrime
Yerba Buena Gardens, San Francisco: 14 reviews and 36 photos
We visited Yerba Buena Gardens after our visit to SF Museum of Modern Art because it is just opposite the museum. It was full of people lying on the grass, I don?t think there is any other green area at this part of the city anyway which is full of concrete. The park isn?t very big but it is quiet and helps you escape from the busy city for a while. There are some nice flowers, a lot of big trees but the big grassy area in the center of the park is where most of the people relax or playing with a ball. We enjoyed the Waterfalls (pic 2), actually there is a Martin Luther King Jr Memorial just behind the water with some of hime quotes written on the walls.
We spend some time watching other people having a picnic in the park (there are numerous concrete seating places)
The park faces St. patrick?s catholic church (pic 3). It was founded in 1851 and landmarked on December 12th 1968. Next to it is the Contemporary jewish museum (pic 4). It is located at 736 Mission street on a beautiful building but we didn?t have the chance to go inside. It is open Thursday to Tuesday 11.00-17.00. The entrance fee is $10 but on Thursdays the museum stays open till 20.45 and the entrance fee in the evening is only $5.
