Concrete Garden. Yerba Buena Gardens wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. I imagined tons of flowers and small dirt paths, maybe a little pond in the middle. It was more of a concrete garden if you ask me. There is a beautiful waterfall, great views of the city, lots of big trees, some nice art sculptures, a big grassy area in the center, a restaurant and tea house above the waterfall, and tons of birds! Even though it wasn't exactly what I imagined, it is still a very nice place to sit around and have some lunch while people watching. I didn't get a chance to check out B Bar or Samovar tea lounge but I definitely want to go back and try out some tea.
Picnic on the lawn and enjoy free midday concerts at San Francisco's lovely patch of green..
Located next to Moscone Center and across the street from SFMOMA, this sprawling stretch of bright green lawn lures museum mavens and working stiffs alike to linger on benches or seek out nooks underneath blossoming willow tree branches. On a normal day, the gardens are lightly scattered with refuge seekers, but on concert days, the park transforms into a festive urban oasis. Every visitor will be touched (and sprayed) by the majestic Martin Luther King Jr. memorial fountain.
Fun for Everyone!. Yerba Buena Gardens has areas that please the young and old. With the gardens and waterfalls, one can sit and read or dream. Younger visitors love the play area and the large play balls. Don't forget to bowl 10 frames while you're there, ride the merri-go-round, and check in on the skating rink!
