About Edward Gibbons San Francisco

Highlights of San Francisco: Golden Gate Park

A longtime resident of San Francisco, Edward Gibbons has been a Golden Gate Park enthusiast and likes his shortcuts through the park. The park is one of the top three most-visited city parks in the United States, with annual outings from millions of residents like Edward Gibbons and the throngs of tourists visiting the city. Golden Gate Park consists of 1,000-plus acres of public land. In this abundant space, visitors can find playgrounds, sports fields, buffalos in paddock, cultural institutions, nature hikes, and other features with vital connections to the city and its history.

Developed in the 1870s, Golden Gate Park owes its existence to a massive collaborative effort between field engineer William Hammond Hall, horticulturalist John McLaren, and some of the city’s most prominent leaders, who planted tens of thousands of trees in the newly dedicated park site. Over the next several decades, Golden Gate Park became home to a series of man-made buildings, including the Conservatory of Flowers, the Japanese Tea Garden, the Music Concourse and associated Spreckels Temple of Music, the de Young Museum, Kezar Stadium, and the California Academy of Sciences, which all continue as greatly appreciated landmarks.

In more recent years, Golden Gate Park has added to its diverse offerings with the National AIDS Memorial Grove, the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club Casting Pools, and the volunteer-maintained disc golf course. Over the years, Edward Gibbons has enjoyed these areas of Golden Gate Park as well as the Stow Lake, the arboretum, the rose garden, the rhododendron garden, the Queen Wilhelmina garden at the base, or the Dutch windmill near Ocean Beach.
