There are so many wonderful areas within this park - the California academy of Science, the deYoung museum, the conservancy, the beautiful flower gardens and walkways that go all the way form the Haight Ashbury district to the Pacific Ocean !

If you saw all you can see in SF and around and still have time - may be makes sense to visit. The park with huge trees, former navy facility rebuilt into the college and a view to the Golden bridge are good to see....More

Questions & Answers
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
