Yerba Buena Gardens, located directly above the Moscone Center, is an urban oasis in the heart of San Francisco. Yerba Buena Gardens features an eclectic array of distinctive architecture and public art, fountains, a prominent waterfall, restaurants, entertainment and a variety of galleries and museums. Its open spaces are inviting, yet protected from the bustle of city streets. It is also within a short walk of both Union Square and the Financial District. Yerba Buena Gardens' outdoor venues are available for private rentals, including lunches, receptions, promotional events, and photo shoots. All proceeds from rentals benefit the free programming in the Gardens - over 75 free performances annually, including music, dance, theater, poetry and children's programming.
