Why locals recommend it
What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.
Tips from locals
A must see! Check out the De Young Museum, the Japanese Garden and the Botanical Garden, not to miss the California Academy of Sciences, and walk down to the Beach Chalet for a nice meal ocean front at sunset!
The park is beautiful inside out. Many attractions from within. The list includes: Rose Garden, Japanese Friendship Garden, Botanical Garden, Art Museum, Duck boating & many more. One day visit will not be enough! It's about 1hr away from Santa Clara.
