Golden Gate Park – Queen Wilhelmina Garden

Located under the grand Dutch (North) windmill at the west end of Golden Gate Park, you will find out why the Queen Wilhelmina Garden has been delighting visitors since the 1900s. Each year, flower bulbs are donated by the Dutch Bulb Growers’ Association; the tulips of the garden are usually in full bloom in March. This combination of colorful tulips and the majestic windmill will give you the perfect setting for your occasion.
