It is on a perfect spot where you will be able to view the harbor of the San Francisco. A lot of tourists and locals stop by to have a cup of wine, eat snacks, and play with their dogs. The dogs are well-behaved at the park. The only con I can think of is the construction that is happening... More

With so many fantastic dining options in the Mission District, this is a fantastic spot to enjoy a to-go order and enjoy a picnic lunch surrounded by a great vista of downtown San Francisco. People watching is an added bonus.

Best place to catch the spirit of San Francisco. Just go there on a sunny Sunday and you'll understand!

This park is where a lot of locals hang out with few tourists visiting. There is a fun playground for kids, various places to lay out on the grass, people play tennis, throw frisbees, practice hula-hooping, etc.

This park is in a great location, right between the Mission and Castro districts, so there's a lot of stuff to do and places to eat right nearby. It's got fantastic views of the city and is super easy to get to - you can take the J Muni to 20th and Church. It is being renovated so it's a... More

We came here with some friends who live in SF. If it's a sunny Saturday you have to come here! Bring some beers and good, as you'll stay for a while and everyone is eating and drinking here. All the different sun cultures come here and it's such a good place to people watch. Also has some great views of... More

Busy and fun hipster park. In the weekends with nice weather the park is really busy and a great place to relax the afternoon. The shops around the corner sell beers etc.

Currently under renovation, so people squished in pretty tight for one of the city's biggest parks, but on the beautiful sunny blue-sky Sunday we visited, it was jam packed with an amazing array of locals...old, young, remnants of hippies, new style ones, lots of booze and drugs, music, but all within the bounds of decorum. Part of iconic San Francisco...aesthetically,... More

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.
