Golden Gate Park stretches from the fire pits at Ocean Beach to Stanyan Street on the east side. If your group wants to spend an afternoon in the park, or just stop though to see some of its main attractions, the best way to get there safely and easily is by renting a San Francisco charter bus.
Golden Gate Park spans 1,017 acres and is filled with various gardens, playgrounds, lakes, picnic groves, trails, and monuments. It’s also home to an array of cultural venues that host regular events and community activities. The park welcomes more than 13 million visitors every year. When visiting Golden Gate Park, the best place to start is McLaren Lodge. This is where you can grab a map and find out about the events happening in the park that day.
Picking and choosing what to see in the park can be difficult. What started as a vast windswept expanse of sand dunes has been carefully manicured into a verdant, horticulturally diverse, and picturesque public space. Park engineer William Hammond hall and master gardener John McLaren sculpted Golden Gate Park into a beautiful space for city dwellers to escape their fast-paced lives and reconnect with the natural world.
Golden Gate Park’s northern edge parallels Fulton Street and its southern edge is flanked by Lincoln Way. Throughout the park, there is a variety of unique attractions to visit. Starting on the west edge of the park, Kezar Stadium is a sporting venue that holds 10,000 spectators and regularly hosts a variety of events. From there, you can walk through Robin Williams Meadow, over Hippie Hill, and down Nancy Pelosi Drive to Shakespeare Garden.
Continuing down Martin Luther King Drive, you’ll find yourself taking in the scene of Mother Meadow’s Playground, Strawberry Hill, and Stow Lake. Pedal boats and rowboats can be rented at the Stow Lake Boathouse if you want to get out on the water. If you make it all the way to the west side of the park, your group can bring a cord or two of firewood and enjoy sunset around a warm fire at the Ocean Beach fire pits.
