Golden Gate Park: American History
Memories in Trees, Stone & Bronze

Neighborhood: Golden Gate Park


With more than 1,000 acres of monuments, trees and museums, you could get a pretty good retrospective of American history just by strolling through Golden Gate Park. San Francisco has used the park as a way to honor and connect to plenty of important events, including the American Revolution.

Join us on a delightful walk through one of America’s greatest parks, where you’ll hear about all the monuments — both well-known and obscure — and how they show San Francisco’s commitment and connection to the rest of the nation. We’ll also explore the wonderful consequences of the mid-winter fair of 1894 — Many of the park’s famous structures can be traced back to that event.
