Golden Gate Park Botanical Gardens

The Botanical Gardens at Golden Gate Park is arguably one of the best places to visit in San Francisco and maybe the state. These world class gardens never disappoint as a alternative to the traffic and tourism of the City. One can visit frequently throughout the year and see something different each time. In COVID times its a wonderful way to get outside and keep your distance from other folks while breathing sweet salty fresh air. I have visited here many many times over the years and will be forever grateful for my best friend going to college here and introducing me to this magnificent place. The enormous and aged coastal trees are stunning, the detail of the flowers from all over the world are magnificent, and the trails are fun. There is also nothing wrong with bringing a blanket and popping a top of something and just enjoying the sunshine amongst acres and acres of beautiful picnic location options in the gardens.

    • Oh please do! It’s glorious anytime of the year as long as the weather is nice and not too windy. The park gets busy but the gardens are always nice and pleasant. Also so many other places in Golden get park one can easily spend a day there. -Jenny

  3. Lovely photos! For about three years in late 80s, my husband and I lived a block up from the entrance to Golden Gate Park, at Lincoln and 9th Avenue. We practically lived in the park, and I used to think of the Arboretum as my own garden that I shared with other people (and, of course, that someone else managed). GG Park is indeed an oasis in an otherwise incredibly crowded city.
