Incredible views

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

Be careful : Trip advisor is indicating the wrong location. It is on 18th, send not on 16th. Nice view of the city. Good place to go with your kids. They will play in an awesome area.

Delores,Park was once a lovely open space, with breathtaking views and a wonderful children's playground, (newly remodeled) one would think that you couldn't go wrong. I decided to walk through the park one evening on my way to dinner and was disgusted by what I saw. Throngs of drunk loud people taking up every inch of the grass, and a... More

As far as public parks go, this one offers it all, a wide variety of people picnicking both young people and families alike all enjoying a beautiful city view. I visited this place on a Sunday and it was teaming with people, it is not a 'touristy' place by any stretch and you are clearly amongst the locals here. The... More

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
