The Conservatory of Flowers, Japanese Tea Garden, and San Francisco Botanical Garden are wonderful settings for film, video, and photography from wedding photos to family portraits and much more. All commercial film, video, or photo production (Film) on SF Recreation and Parks Department property requires a Film Permit. Commercial film, production is defined as any activity that results in a film, video, or photograph being sold, or any activity involving filming or photography for which crew and/or talent is paid. It does not include photography or video for personal use. All Film Permits require the coordination of the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department’s Film Permit Office, with a minimum of ten working days’ notice prior to the date of the shoot.
