There are over 55 acres of beauty to explore in the San Francisco Botanical Garden. To give your group the most flexibility on timing, you should book a San Francisco charter bus to shuttle your school group, corporate outing, or wedding party to and from your desired destinations. Specifically, you can book a school bus, a minibus, a coach bus, or a shuttle service. When you do so, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of parking, battling traffic, or navigating the busy city. Your hired driver will do all of that for you.
The San Francisco Botanical Garden is located just south of the Richmond District and North of Inner Sunset District in Golden Gate Park. In the park you will also find the California Academy of Sciences, a natural history museum with an aquarium, planetarium, and scientists actively conducting research. If your group wants to picnic nearby, the Shakespeare Garden is the perfect location for that. This romantic spot has many plants commonly mentioned in Shakespeare’s work. Alternatively, if you’d like to grab a bite to eat in a nearby neighborhood, you’ll find plenty of fresh seafood restaurants including Pacific Catch and Ebisu.
Just a short walk north of the Botanical Garden is the de Young Museum, a fine arts museum with a dramatic copper finish, featuring a diverse collection of art.
Between 1870 and 1876 William Hammond Hall, an army-trained engineer, surveyed the site, created the preliminary designs, and stabilized the sand dunes of the park to set the foundation for the first 60,000 trees he planted. Finally, in 1926 the San Francisco Botanical Garden became a reality. Helene Strybing provided the funds to establish an arboretum and garden in Golden Gate Park. Ground was broken in the 1930s. The garden went on to provide jobs for unemployed workers during the Great Depression.
In 2015 the garden celebrated its 75th Anniversary through a community celebration. On Christmas Day in 2017, the garden received a record breaking amount of visitors. 10,689 people came in a single day. In the summertime, kids entering kindergarten through 3rd grade can attend an all-outdoors day camp at the Botanical Gardens called Garden Camp.
