GOLDEN GATE PARK, SAN FRANCISCO
by Andre Salvador
Golden Gate Park is bigger than New York’s Central Park, and has over one million trees, nine lakes, several fly casting pools and a lily pond within its borders. Golden Gate Park is the ultimate haven away from urban chaos, was deeded
to the people in 1870 out of the prescient notion that San Franciscans would one day feel overcrowded. This foresight proved invaluable, as 75,000 people now visit the park on an average weekend.
