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.

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!
