"Dutch Windmill" Golden Gate Park Tip by machomikemd
Golden Gate Park, San Francisco: 106 reviews and 206 photos
the dutch windmill is the most photographed part of the sprawling Golden Gate Park and it recently renovated due to the deteriorating conditions of this Landmark in The Golden Gate Park. The Dutch Windmill was built in 1902, at a cost of $16,000, together with a Dutch Cottage alongside which was occupied by the mill's caretaker. 75 feet high, and 33 feet in diameter at the base, is sails had a span of 102 feet and meant it was capable of pumping 30,000 gallons of fresh water per hour from underground to a reservoir on Strawberry Hill. Walking or Jogging along the Great Highway and Ocean Beach and one will see this cultural icon. Just beside this cultural icon of the Golden Gate Park is the Queen Wilhelmina Garden where many couples have their wedding vows (see my off the beaten path tips).
