SAN FRANCISCO — Police pulled a body out of a lake at Golden Gate Park on Monday. 

The body was discovered in Stow Lake, a popular destination for picnickers and boaters at the 1,000-acre park. 

Police and city medical examiner’s office had no details on how long the body was in the water or whether it was a man or a woman. 

The coroner’s office planned to conduct an examination Tuesday to try to identify the body and cause of death, according to Tim Hellman of the medical examiner’s office.
