Golden Gate Park is an enormous city park located in San Francisco, California. There are 1017 acres of beauty along with some fun activities awaiting those who visit. Around 13 million visitors come to the park each year to enjoy all it has to offer, 75,000 of them on an average weekend. There are more than one million trees in Golden Gate Park. Surrounded by all of this greenery, visitors can visit the Conservatory of Flowers, a flower museum reminiscent of a rainforest, the De Young Museum of Art, and the Strybing Outdoor Arboreteum, which features plants from around the world.
On the weekends, visitors can rent bicycles and roller blades and enjoy them in all areas of the park, as cars are not allowed in the park during this time. The Japanese Tea Garden is the oldest of its kind in the United States. The windmills and Tulip Garden, free concerts at the Spreckels Temple of Music, and boat rentals for leisurely rides on Stow Lake are all great attractions.
