Endless Discoveries

Golden Gate Park is one of the most extensive and interesting parks in the city. Spanning nearly 5 miles from Ocean Beach to Haight-Ashbury, the park is home to some great wilderness areas, picnic spots, gardens, playing fields, lakes, museums, art installations, festivals and more. So whether you want to spend the afternoon browsing art at the De Young Museum, meandering through the Botanical gardens, paddle boating on Stow Lake, or awing at the Bison (yes there are bison), you won't run out of things to do in this spectacular urban park. You could probably spend days in Golden Gate Park and never explore all of its nooks and crannies, but to help you out, we have listed some of the best spots below.
