A history of Golden Gate Park

Local architect Glenn Robert Lym is back with a new installment of his “HERE” series. In this episode, he presents a really interesting history of Golden Gate Park.

You’ll learn about the early architects of the park, how the park evolved from a playground for the wealthy to the park it is today, see great, vintage photos of the park’s Mid Winter Exposition in 1894, and learn how the de Young and Academy of Sciences found their homes in the concourse.
