People depend on plants for the oxygen we breathe, the food we eat, and the beauty that comforts the soul. The more we understand and cherish the interconnectedness of all life on Earth, the more we will do to conserve and sustain life on our planet. This core belief guides the work of San Francisco Botanical Garden.
The Garden offers 55 acres of beautiful gardens displaying nearly 9,000 different kinds of plants from around the world. With San Francisco’s famous fog and mild climate, the Garden enjoys a range of climatic conditions that exists in few other botanical gardens in the world, allowing it to grow and conserve a highly diverse and critically important botanical collection.
Visit year round for a bounty of seasonal highlights, including fall’s cloud forests blooms, as well as traditional fall foliage; winter’s Magnificent Magnolias; spring and summer’s eruptive bloom throughout the Garden; a century-old Redwood Grove; as well as other unique global collections.
The Garden also offers special events and programming such as Flower Piano, Garden Feast, Bean Sprouts Family Days, plant sales, and more.
