What To Expect
Start by meeting your guide and participating in a 35- to 45-minute practice session to get used to your Segway, which most riders find to be very intuitive. Then set off, gliding through the park with your guide, who will tell you about the history of the park, such as how it went from uninhabited sand dunes in the 1870s to a well-planned city gathering space that’s home to museums, lakes, gardens and more. Spot sights like the Shakespeare Garden, the lawn bowling courts, the Conservatory of Flowers, Stow Lake and two impressive museums—the California Academy of Sciences and the de Young, a fine arts museum.
Cruise past Lily Pond, a pioneer log cabin, a grove of redwood trees and other lesser-known highlights, and make plenty of stops to take photos of this 1,000-acre (405-hectare) sanctuary that spreads from the middle of the city to Ocean Beach. Your tour ends with return to the starting point in the park.
