I'm a little hesitant to write a review of this garden, since I love it when I get the entire garden practically to myself. It's right by the Academy of Sciences, but most people walk right by the entrance without realizing what's inside. Follow the brick path and you'll find over 100 flowers, plants, herbs and trees mentioned in Shakespeare's works, as well as quiet benches, perfect for a romantic timeout. There's a lovely bust of the bard himself. In fact, the garden is a popular spot in which to get married.
Nice little garden. Be sure to stop in if you're at the Golden Gate Park. (no fee)
