Welcome to the Yerba Buena Gardens, the crown jewel of San Francisco. This beautiful public facility is conveniently located at Fourth and Mission Streets. We promise you an experience that is enjoyable, rewarding, and enriching. The venue features gardens, public art, food, awards, and buildings.
Amongst the beautiful gardens, The Esplanade tops the list. The Esplanade could be considered the front yard of downtown San Francisco. The five and one-half acres of meadows, trees, flowers, falling water, public art, and small cafes are all arranged in an open-arms gesture of welcome. On the serene grassy meadow in the center children come to play or just lie in the grass. Visitors and locals come to relax and listen to an outdoor concert during their lunch hour. Conventioneers stroll through the beautiful Gardens on their way to Moscone Convention Center. The sound of water, the smell of flowers, the warmth of sunlight, the unfolding carpet of grass, the expanse of open sky, and the backdrop of buildings and bridges create a serene oasis in the middle of the bustle of downtown San Francisco.
