You need strong legs to bike around here with a toddler seat. We did and I was sore for days. The park itself was beautiful with decent hotdog stands around.

This place is rather small and there is little there to justify spending $9 per person to visit. Maybe the fall is not the best time to visit, but everything looked rather bland. Nothing jumped out at you as especially beautiful. Many of the plants...More

This park provides an ample opportunity for a wide range of activities. It's not an exaggeration to say there are innumerable things a person can see & do here, it would take you quite a prolonged period of time to do them all. It has...More

Come and enjoy the scenery. This park does offering a good relaxation in the big busy city. Visit in the afternoon will be better since the weather will not be to cold.

There is so much to do and see here--the museum, Academy of Sciences, Tea Garden, stow lake, etc that you should plan to spend at least a full day. Great restaurants surround the periphery of the park. Rent bikes for maximum mobility. Wouldn't skip this...More

Walked over from haight-ashbury and the street kids pour into the entrance of the park. The memorial in the park is peaceful but didn't spend much time in it as it was very underwhelming compared to Central Park in New York. Didn't like the roads...More

This place surprised me a lot. There are lots of free time activities for all ages. Spending a day there was a nice ending of our vacation!

You can walk in the park, go by bus, taxi, car or bicycle but whichever way you do you will just love it. There is so much to do hear and such variety. The park is a must if visiting a San Francisco.

We rented a bike to get to know this garden. You have plenty options of places to do so. Some very touristic, some bike stores, not that touristic, as our option. 8 dollars per hour. We spent 3 hours, but we went all the way...More

We enjoyed our morning spent walking around this park. As birders we were keen to find some birds and we did. The botanical garden was very interesting.

The park is free to enter. The different exhibits charge ticket prices such as gardens and museums, etc. It's huge so bring a stroller. Not many food options other than the museum cafe, so you may want to consider packing a... More
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

I went there with my husband in April this year and it was totally safe. We walked loads of the trails, went to the Japanese garden and the boating lake. Didn't see any unsavoury characters.....unlike in other parts of SF
