Longines Rock Garden is located on the seashore near the Palace of Arts. There are not many tourists. When the weather is good, the sun is relatively dry and the sea breeze is relatively strong, but the view is particularly good and the sea view is first-rate. The Longines Stone Garden is a man-made stone art installation. There are many pipes in the stone garden. It is said that the sound of wind and waves echo through them in the stone garden, and they can play wonderful natural sounds. Inside, the stone stacking presents a ladder-like seat, which is the best place to listen to the nature. In normal days, the wind and waves are not strong enough for mortals to hear any music.
Although Longines Rock Garden is an artificial scenic spot, the original topography is added with creativity, so that the waves can make a very special sound of music, which is very impressive, and the relationship between the location here is also relatively small. of
Worth the walk. Be sure and check the tides- you won't hear much if it's low!
The Wave Organ is a quirky, interactive acoustic sculpture located on a jetty in the Marina. I love it. There are pipes extending into the surf and you an lean your ear agains them and listen to the sound of the water sloshing against the rocks. It's also my favorite spot for gazing at the Golden Gate Bridge.
Sheer hope is what leads me to give the Wave Organ five stars. That, and it's free. Wander out into the Bay from Marina Green Park and you'll find this artist-made installation made in partnership with our beloved Exploratorium. Waves crash into the Organ, creating music that I have yet to hear. Even on my second visit, I was not lucky enough to hear the supposed nature-inspired concerto.Next time.
This is one of the coolest things to do in San Francisco, but it seems like a lot of people don't even know about it!
