About the event

Friends of the Urban Forest invites you to a one-of-kind walking tour in Golden Gate Park led by Jillian Keller, Menlo Park’s city arborist.  Jillian is also a consulting arborist and landscape restoration expert.

Most of the area now occupied by Golden Gate Park was covered with sand dunes and coastal scrub prior to the development of the park. Jillian will discuss how engineer William Hammond Hall, the park’s first superintendent, and  master gardener John McLaren transformed the landscape, and she'll point out some of the interesting species to be found in the park today.

We'll meet at the Rideout Fountain in the center of the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park, and cover an area of mostly flat ground during our walk. We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring water (to stay hydrated) and sun protection.
