The is a pleasant green space just opposite the SFMOMA (which is excellent). There were working fountains and not too much sign of the construction which seemed to ruin past reviewers experiences here. The memorial to Martin Luther King is the highlight of the 'gardens'....More

The size is more like a small park than a garden, but there is a nice assortment of plants, trees, and bushes to check out along with a butterfly garden. But to me, the highlight was an incredible memorial to Martin Luther King with ponds...More

I had walked around Yerba Buena Gardens many times before, but had spent scant time there. On this February trip to San Francisco, I took more time to explore the Gardens, and enjoyed my stroll. First, it’s relatively small, but is a grassy “oasis” right...More

To be honest this is one of my favorites in the city in between all the skyscreapers, I took a book, lay down on the grass and admire the architecture around you.

This is a very nice park with plenty of open greenspace and an attractive waterfall feature. We know folks who work in the area and often take their lunch in the park. The park is very close to the Museum of Modern Art.

This is a pleasant green spot in the middle of a large city. Lovely artwork, benches, grass and shrubbery have created a pretty urban oasis.

this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
