Get to know the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco
It’s quite interesting how this park came to exist. The idea to turn a sand dune area to a park was first raised at the end of the 19 century, and the result was the Golden Gate Park San Francisco – a combination of hilly park with lakes, meadows and many great attractions, such as the Japanese Tea garden with it’s large pagoda, the De Young museum, which holds a diverse collection of paintings, the Conservatory of Flowers, which is a Victorian-style greenhouse, and the Dutch garden which also hosts a windmill. The twelve million people who visit this park every year make it the second most visited park in the US.
The De Young museum that’s located in the park is just one of the many museums in San Francisco. Check our video guides about San Francisco’s other museums to learn more about them.
