SF’s “Conservatory of Flowers” Free First Tuesdays (Golden Gate Park)
Every 1st Tuesday
Whether you’re a native San Franciscan, a visitor from the other side of the world, or a budding botanist, the Conservatory of Flowers located in Golden Gate Park, offers an intimate, up-close experience with nearly 2,000 species of rare, exotic and endangered plants from more than 50 different countries.
Opened in 1879, the wood and glass greenhouse is the oldest existing conservatory of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.
