It's like one big chill city-wide bbq, right down to the police not seeming to care about open container laws. Chill.

We often come here with our grandkids since our son and his family live in the neigbourhood. It’s one of our favourite spots to let the small ones be kids and run around until they drop. Currently, (June 2015) the park is undergoing renovations and appears as if it will be a few more weeks until they finish the upgrades... More

On a Friday evening, my brother and I grabbed sandwiches from Ike's and headed to Dolores park for an al fresco dinner. We walked on to the north end of the park (which was recently renovated) and chose a piece of hilly grass to sit on. On a Friday around 7:00pm, Dolores park was rather crowded (in a good way)...

Visited on a super hot day this Summer. Shaded areas were full of visitors. The playground area seemed like a blast! Totally would've love that place if I were a kid! There were a lot of adults out sunbathing/playing Beer Pong, drinking, etc. Probably best to keep the kids in the playground. There are port-a-potties...stay away from that area if... More

This used to be a cemetery and today is an amazing park, and the new improvements are fantastic, new bathrooms, new tennis courts, and so much sod! The kids park continues to be a hit with everyone, and the up hill slope will soon be reconditioned. On a sunny day, this is the place!

Great view but you are surrounded by everyone else in the city. The park itself has a continuous smell of urine. Pass!

We visited the park with gyros in hand, watched the locals play tennis, and took in the amazing views of San Francisco and the Bay. Great spot before heading out of the area.

The park is still undergoing some major renovation so I rated it a 3 simply because of the crowds trying to find space on a lovely day and the crowding that results. We were in the area for three weeks visiting a son, and went to the park several times during our stay. It was a nice place to grab... More
