Golden Gate Park occupies a 3-mile-long stretch of land in the city, and it encompasses a huge variety of attractions aside from its beautiful open spaces. Among them are the Conservatory of Flowers, de Young Museum, the Academy of Sciences and a bison paddock. The western end of the park abuts Ocean Beach, and there you'll find the Beach Chalet, now a brewery restaurant and home to elaborate murals commissioned by the WPA in the 1930s. Aside from the park, the Sunset features the San Francisco Zoo, the private Olympic Club golf course, and Stern Grove, a wooded amphitheater that hosts free concerts in the summer.
