“find out what’s happening in San Francisco’s backyard”

Golden Gate Park, located in San Francisco, California, is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres (412 ha) of public grounds. Configured as a rectangle, it is similar in shape but 20% larger than Central Park in New York, to which it is often compared. It is over three miles (5 km) long east to west, and about half a mile north to south. With 13 million visitors annually, Golden Gate is the third most visited city park in the United States after Central Park in New York City andLincoln Park in Chicago. Within Golden Gate Park’s 1,017 acres you’ll discover gardens, playgrounds, lakes, picnic groves, trails, and monuments, plus an array of cultural venues, events, and activities. To help you plan your visit, we’ve highlighted just a few of the park’s special features and activities below. For more information, stop by McLaren Lodge to pick up a map, get involved, and find out what’s happening in San Francisco’s backyard.

A beautiful, popular park. If you're visiting and have a couple hours, bike through the park!

Lots of hiking and scenery to explore if that's the kind of thing you're into. The scale and beauty of Golden Gate is perhaps only rivaled by New Yorks Central Park. Not only are there natural attractions to see, Golden Gate also has an antique carousel for the family. Highly recommend.

Lots to see and do here! Waterfalls, bison, museums, paths and trails, memorials, gardens, ponds.... however there are busy highly trafficked streets running through which can ruin the effect at times
