The San Francisco Botanical Gardens are located in the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California. They cover 55 acres and contain over 8,000 types of plants from around the world.
Some of the garden collections include an ancient plant garden, a fragrance garden, a Mediterranean garden, a rhododendron garden and plants from countries like Chile, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
There's also a small children's garden that contains wood chip paths that lead through vegetable beds, fruit patches, and herbs. Kids can plant crops, weed, water, and make compost. Once they are done tending the gardens, they can visit the lovely butterfly garden.
The garden is open daily from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Admission is $7.00 for adults, and $5.00 for children.
