Nice views, but this part of SF has been fairly overrun with techies. Even though I used to love coming over here, this really isn't on my list of places to visit any longer. Still, on a nice day, getting an ice cream at Bi-Rite and heading over to the park to take in the views is a beautiful thing.

This is a park where people go to sun bath or play tennis. We enjoyed the rest on the grass while walking from Mission to Castro, but a place I would not feel very comfortable in with so many homless people wandering around, of course they have to live also.

I went to Dolores Park with some friends. It was the perfect combination of quality time and relaxation. This place is amazing, no more words can describe it. You can see the diversity of San Francisco. You can enjoy the landscape, full of people hanging out, doing yoga, playing games or just sitting on the grass chilling. You just have... More

After brunch on Valencia my boyfriend and I decided to hang out in Dolores Park for the day. We found ourselves a little spot amongst the crowds and got situated. A few friends met up with us and it was a great time. The new bathrooms were super clean and the renovated side of the park is looking great, I... More

Lovely park newly remodel. It bares the name of the Basilica that is close by and you must also visit. But if you come here on a sunny day and feel like getting some sun. Head over to Dolores Park and enjoy the nice vistas with all the locals. Head over to Bi-Rite and get some ice cream or grab... More

Great Park for sunbathing and relaxing. Lots of dogs. Don't come here if you're afraid of dogs. Includes Tennis courts.

I visited Mission Dolores Park a few times during my stay in the Mission District in San Francisco. It is a beautiful park situated on a hill. I recommend climbing to the top of the hill and checking out the amazing views of the city! If you walk to Church Street (just on the other side of the park), you... More

The views of the city are fantastic from Delores Park! There's something for everyone - basketball, tennis, children's playground, beautiful flower gardens, great place for a picnic and people watching! You'll find people of all ages enjoying this lovely in-town park.

Walked to this park. Nice views over San Francisco. One side of the park was under renovation/construction so that sort of took away from the park for me. Nice place to bring a picnic on a sunny day.

A local from San Francisco who I met at Union Square recommended that I also go to Dolores Park in the Mission district. Unfortunately when I went there were large sections of the park under construction but even for the middle of the week it was quite busy. There was a big mix of people from families with children, young... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
