Richmond and Sunset Districts

Richmond and Sunset Districts Travel Guide

The 1,000-acre park, which straddles the line between the Richmond and Sunset districts west of downtown, is the heart and soul of the city.

Located in the center of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park sits the park's largest body of water, Stow Lake. Complete with an electrically pumped, 110-foot waterfall, the lake surrounds Strawberry Hill Island, from which much of the western portion of San Francisco can be seen.

Although its collection is a tad out of balance (strong on New Guinea art, historical American paintings, and Anatolian kilims; light on anything contemporary) and critics carp that the current director opts for style instead of substance, this museum itself is definitely an eyeful.

A chance meeting with a four-wheel, multi-passenger surrey cycle in Italy 24 years ago was Brian McInerney’s inspiration for this shop. Wheel Fun Rentals is a franchise based on a philosophy of supporting active lifestyles and maintaining a healthy environment for all.

The Conservatory of Flowers in the Golden Gate Park is beautiful in itself: The manicured lawns and gardens surround this wooden Victorian conservatory that is one of the oldest in the world. It's divided into four sections: aquatic plants, highland tropics, lowland tropics, and potted plants.

The Museum, in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, extends green, sustainable architecture in unprecedented ways.
