This park is a must if you are in SF, whether is the view or the crowd, during weekend or any hot day in the city this is the place to go each corner of this park seems like to have their unique crown. Take a walk and you'll see, enjoy

This site has a great view, lots of space to chill both on the grass or benches. It's right in front of a beautiful mission buildind. Try to bring a blanket or something if the grass is wet.

A beautiful sloping park with great views of the city, it is worth dropping by if you're in the area but probably not somewhere to make a special trip to unless you have kids who will enjoy the playground.

Didn't seem like much to me when we visited it. Basically just a grassy field on a hillside with a lot of dusty, noisy construction work going on around it. Did I miss something??

Visit this park on an average weekend and you'll be in for people watching treat. The mix of people combined with the great weather make it a wonderful city escape. The park has a newly remodeled children's playground that both my 3 and 7 year old children just love. There are plenty of hills, slides, rocks and stairs to climb.... More

Mission Dolores Park as the name suggests is located in the neighbourhood of Mission, the sunny-side of San Francisco. Shortly after we arrived in San Francisco (and first time to the USA) we went out to explore our local neighbourhood. I was rather keen to get a glimpse of the city and had read that we could from Mission Dolores... More

This is a smaller scale park going up a hill. Very nice to just sit towards the top, and look down at the view of the city and also people watch. It definitely feels more of a local and relaxed hangout spot. Within walking distance to Valencia St and The Castro. Half the park (the bottom part) is currently undergoing... More

This park is abuzz with San Franciscans doing their local habits. Dogs run abound, hipsters play music, families enjoying their picnics. It offers a panoramic view of downtown San Francisco.

A pretty park on a hill in a gorgeous neighborhood setting. Home to many diverse get togethers from Peace Rally's to The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence Easter charity Egg Hunt and Hunky Jesus contest! The weather is almost always warm and sunny and clear and it attracts tons of people relaxing on blankets, picnicking BBQ and sporty things. The crowd... More
