Beautiful Golden Gate Park

Japanese Tea Garden
Golden Gate Park, located in San Francisco, California, is a large urban park consisting of 1,017 acres (4.12 km2; 1.589 sq mi) of public grounds. Configured as a rectangle, it is similar in shape but 20% larger than Central Park in New York, to which it is often compared. It is over three miles (5 km) long east to west, and about half a mile north to south. With 13 million visitors annually, Golden Gate is the third most visited city park in the United States.

Golden Gate Park provides you with the perfect backdrop: miles and miles of lush greenery. The park also includes the Japanese Tea Garden. Situated inside the Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Tea Garden boasts well-manicured lawns and unique architecture. Golden Gate Park has over one million trees, nine lakes, several fly casting pools and a lily pond within its borders. Golden Gate National Parks chronicle two hundred years of history, from the Native American culture, the Spanish Empire frontier, and the growth of urban San Francisco. Strybing Arboretum and Botanical Garden, the Conservatory of Flowers and several museums are among its many attractions. Rent a boat and drift or paddle around circular Stow Lake with Strawberry Hill in the center.
