The Dutch Windmill of Golden Gate Park
On the far western edge of Golden Gate Park (San Francisco) stands two wooden windmills that were built to pump groundwater for irrigating the park’s lawns and gardens. The Dutch Windmill was built in 1902 but it no longer functions. The Queen Wilhelmina Tulip Garden, planted just below the Dutch Windmill, features thousands of tulips interspersed with Icelandic poppies.
