Everybody’s Park is turning 150 this weekend, and you can join the celebration online!

Golden Gate Park’s sesquicentennial celebrations have been postponed to a later date this year, due to the outbreak. But while the birthday bash plans have been put on hold, the park has decided to honor the occasion by bringing a virtual experience to the world.

Starting from April 4, you can head to the Virtual Golden Gate Park and enjoy a range of exclusive content including events, activities, hidden treasures, live cams and virtual concerts.

All of the park’s major museums and galleries will be online for you to enjoy from a distance. You canĀ watch penguins waddle, play and swim on a live cam at the California Academy of Sciences, dive into one of the deepest coral reef tanks, visit the bison or even take a virtual tour of the Japanese Tea Garden.

The virtual bash kicks off with past recordings of Boz Scaggs from Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and Metallica’s 2017 Outside Lands Festival. More is set to be added in the coming week, so keep your eyes peeled.
