Golden Gate Park is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres of public grounds. It features the Kezar Stadium, Conservatory of Flowers, the AIDS Memorial Grove and the Japanese Tea Garden among others.

Golden Gate is the third most visited city park in the United States after Central Park in New York City and Lincoln Park in Chicago.

There is a famous urban legend in this park that has been going on for almost 100 years, being the earliest record of the legend printed in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1908. Over years, different stranges occurences have taken place here with various points of referance. This is why it is believed there are ghosts in this park.

When the park opened, it was a "free-range zoo" with bison, bears, elk, goats, and more. The quirky Buffalo Paddock still exists. Check your park map for its location.Powered by

Go to Stow Lake. You can walk around the lake, hike up the hill for beautiful city views, or rent paddle boats. There are a lot of social squirrels, which is why our dog drags us there regularly.

On Sundays, the streets in the park are closed to traffic. It's a great place to ride a bike, walk, relax outside of the conservatory of flowers, or listen to live concerts at the music concourse.
