We drove into Golden Gate park thinking that it was the park located next to the bridge. We were incorrect and quickly found out that Presidio was the location we had in mind. Not ones to miss the possible treasures of any destination we decided...More

We like getting out and walking and we did that. There is plenty of parking and lots of bike lanes and sidewalks. It took us a while to find a map and then they seemed to be everywhere. Lots to see, most gardens and buildings...More

Iconic inner city park. Beautiful and exceptionally well kept park. Would be a fantastic picnic setting. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to fully explore.

I've heard of all the famous sites in San Francisco but I never even heard of this park, what a shame (although I did hear about the National Science Museum) We took a trolley ride thru the park so we could really get an idea...More

You know, when I visit some park in Europe, there is usually very calm, quiet and peaceful around (unless you visit Disneyland etc.). We don´t have roads for cars across park. But this park is full of roads and there is a lot of cars...More

This is a great park in which to spend an hour or 8 hours. Many activities including trails, Japanese Tea Garden, a great beach, paddle boats and great hidden spots. Perfectly located getaway from the city.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is it safe to visit GGP? I’ve become concerned about going to GGP, after reading numerous negative reviews here on TA. Some travellers have described it as unsavoury, dangerous, dirty or filled with drug addicts and homeless people! My wife and I are in our late 50’s and we will be visiting SF for the first time in Sept from Australia. We’re not exactly adventure tourists who can be ready for anything! My wife especially is quite nervy, so although I have included GGP as one of the places to see, I’m now beginning to wonder whether we should just drop it. I would however like to go to the De Young Museum, so maybe we should just visit that one place and then get out. The day we plan to visit is a Sat. Not sure if that makes it better or worse? Any tips to stay safe if we do go? Thanks
