Mission Delores Park is a fantastic spot to sit back and take in the beauty of San Francisco. I visited the park twice during a recent trip and was treated to two very different experiences. The first, on a weekday mid-afternoon, offered a fairly tranquil spot to take pictures of the skyline and just relax. I returned on Valentine's Day,... More

I'd been riding the J train from Noe Valley to the financial district for a few days and finally decided to get off at Mission Dolores Park one afternoon to better enjoy the view. It's a lovely park with games for kids and lots of space for picnics. The view is impressive, even with the construction nearby.

A large part of the park is under construction now, as many other reviewers noted. BUT! Don't let this fool you into thinking you can skip the Mission Dolores Park! Come anyway - for the view, which is one of the most stunning panoramas of San Francisco. And free.

Mission Dolores Park is a great place for a picnic lunch or just relaxing in the sun, but there are many improvements being made to right now, which will hopefully be done soon. Take a bike or a stroll around.

A great place for a picnic with provisions from Bi-Rite, but at the moment at least the front part seems to be a construction site. Hope they keep this wonderful park open!

The park was under construction when I went, but the kids park was still open. Deep down I am an adult child, so we went to the park in the evening when the kids were gone and played on the slides. Was quite entertaining!

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.
