<== Back to Glossary

An amusement park in the late 1800s, built by Robert Woodward at the location of Mission Street and Duboce. The gardens no longer exist, but the original park was several acres of zoological gardens, art galleries, conservatories, a concert pavilion and various rides and attractions.

Only a restaurant by the name of Woodward's Garden remains at the site of the original park, at 1700 Mission.
