This urban park is the home of the California Academy of Sciences, De Young Museum, Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, Botanical Gardens, National AIDS Memorial Grove, Stowe Lake, a nine-hole golf course, Shakespeare Garden, Rose Garden, two windmills, a bison paddock, the Children's Playground, the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, and more. Activities include bicycling, roller skating, Segway tours, golf, disk golf, soccer, archery, swing dancing, drumming circles and lots of picnics. Annual events include the Bay to Breakers Race, Comedy Day in the Park, Opera in the Park, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, Outside Lands and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass music festivals.

At 1,017 acres, Golden Gate Park is 20% larger than New York's Central Park (1,017 acres vs. 840) and one of the most visited parks in America. With its rectangular shape, the park can be traversed in the north-south direction fairly quickly. In the east-west mode, it's tempting to lose oneself among the groves, glades and glens of the park's lush landscape.
