50 plus blocks long starting from the Panhandle to Ocean Beach, what used to be sand dunes is a local favorite and tourist spot with nature. My favorite stroll walk starts from the Chain of Lake pond on 36th and Fulton, refreshing nature walk passing the waterfalls, Rose Garden to the back of the De Young museum, with Japanese Tea Garden right next door. Walk pass music band stand with classical style water fountains from the Pacific Exposition to the Academy of Science. From there, a short walk pass the Arboretum, will take you to the Sunset District, another local place for great food and shops. Free nature walking tours at Stow Lake start April 11.
