I'm visiting San Francisco in early Feb. for 4 days and curious to hear what I must visit with limited time?  I've already started to develop a list, but don't want to forget something.  Thanks in advance!

OLIN's project of GAP headquarter (roof garden and plaza, and another project of OLIN just one block away from here on the pier.)

Academy of Sciences and Japanese garden in Golden Gate Parks. you have to pay for both. 

Thank you He and Jennifer! 

A quick list having worked in the City for the last 14 years:

Mint Plaza, neat little urban plaza done by CMG Landscape Archtecture

Yerba Buena Gardens, nice open space in SOMA area

Crissy Field, Presidio, location, location, location

Drew School Assembly Wing, something completely different a vertical garden done with Patrick Blanc using like over 100 native plants. A real technical achievement, hydroponics,fertigation and gravity driven irrigation to name just a few of the systems making this thing work.   On Broderick at California.

Albert your recommendations are much appreciated!  I can't wait to visit!  Thank you! 

Hey Brett,

Don't forget to get across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods and up the coast a bit to Point Reyes. http://www.nps.gov/muwo/index.htm 

http://www.nps.gov/pore/index.htm   Enjoy.

Golden Gate Park!

De Young Museum, for sure should be on your list. Also, Andy Goldsworthy's installation at the Presido, "Spire" and the surrounding park is a treat to see. 

Great ideas Brett and Ida!  Thank you!  

Levi-Straus Plaza by Halprin is one of my faves......

 

Japanese gardens at Golden Gate Park is very nice.....

 

don't forget the great book - Stairway Walks" in SF, I  think the author is Balalinsky or something weird like that - but Stairway gardens, and it's set up so you can do a great tour - reallly fun, some are famous..

If you can spare the time, take the BART train across (actualy, under) the bay over to Oakland and check out Jack London Square and the area around Lake Merritt.
