dome and majestic columns always impress me whenever I visit here, the building
with the large pound in front of it is picturesque location and you can see
there in the afternoon many wedding photo shots.
In the pond you
will always find ducks and other birds.

Fine Arts is not a large garden and after short time you will probably continue
your visit to nearby locations such as: city’s northern shore, Crissy Field
Beach, and the large Presidio Park.
