SF considering ‘flexible pricing’ for Japanese Tea Garden, Coit Tower, other tourist spots


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A committee within San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Commission is proposing ‘flexible pricing’ for several popular tourist attractions in the city in hopes of handling crowds and congestion.

The proposal would allow the city to change admission costs at four San Francisco tourist spots — by either increasing costs up to 25 percent and decreasing by 50 percent  

The tourist attractions in the proposal include the Botanical Gardens, Conservatory of Flowers, Coit Tower Elevators and Japanese Tea Garden. 

The Recreation and Park Commission says the price changes would apply to non-San Francisco residents and admission cost changes could change depending on weather, customer demand and facility condition. 

The proposed pricing change was discussed at the commission’s operation committee meeting Thursday and approved. 

The proposal still needs to be reviewed by the Recreation and Park Commission.
