San Francisco Botanical Garden offers free admission for San Francisco residents, but nonresidents have options, too. For example, free days are the second Tuesdays of every month.
Did you know the Garden now offers free Fun Days for kids? From April to September, kids can gather to hear stories, tour patches of garden, and create a garden craft project to take home.
The San Francisco Botanical Garden also hosts plant sales when you can shop for native plants or just browse the wide variety of plants available for sale, many exclusive to the SF Botanical Garden’s Nursery. These sales offer amazing opportunities to buy plants you rarely find at commercial nurseries or garden centers.
