In April and May a survey of Park visitors was conducted at random in the vicinity of the Arboretum, Museums and the Tea Garden. No position was advocated and two simple questions were asked of those who agreed to participate: 1) Where do you live? and 2) Would you visit the Arboretum if there were a $5-$7 fee?. The results indicate the following:
- 87.5% of S.F. residents would not pay to visit the Garden.
- 73% of non-residents would not pay to visit the Garden.
