The Mission Dolores Park is one of the most beautiful outdoor places in the City o f San Francisco, CA.
This Park is controlled by the San Francisco Recreation & Parks, and is a mandatory place to visit by the local and the visitors, because the incredible view of the skyline of San Francisco and also the beautiful and charming Gardens that are inside the Park.
The place is also knowed as the scenario of the movie 'Just like heaven', a delightful romantic comedy of 2005 that was all located at the city of San Francisco.
The Park have a acentuated level diference of topography, tennis courts, playgrounds, gardens and a huge natural Green carpet excelent to lay and just enjoy the warm and lighted sunshine.
I stronguely recommend a visit to this Park.

This park is extremely popular and located in a densely-populated area, so expect crowds. It is located in one of the sunniest parts of town, so often good weather. Great for sun bathing and for a picnic and there are some great views.

I went to this park with friends who live in the area. We walked up to the topside of the park which just seemed like a normal park. Then I turned around to face the bay. What a gorgeous view. If you are in the area, stop there for a great view of the skyline. Most people in the park are picnicking and just enjoying being outside.

On a sunny San Francisco day you might want to check Mission Delores Park at 18th St and Delores St. This is a gathering spot for locals on a typical sunny SF day. Rolling green grass, childrens play structure, tennis courts and genuine laziness. Bring a sandwich, sit back and people watch. Great way to spend an afternoon in San Francisco.

We went to Mission Dolores Park, which is one of the most popular park in San Francisco. It’s a fine place to rest when you visit Mission district, with many lush green lawns and palm trees.
For families with children, there are also picnic areas and playgrounds.

This is a perfect urban park, absolutely full of people especially on weekends. Good place for a picnic and on a sunny day, everyone is out catching rays. Plus the tennis courts. Some attractive houses around.

I was not expecting such a magnificent view of the SF skyline from the top of Mission Dolores park! What a surprise! Otherwise, this is a very beautiful, busy park, with lots of installment for the kids and adults alike. It is close to the Bi-Rite creamery, so also a great place to enjoy an ice cream cone. And it is super accessible, at the top of the park is the tram which will take you all the way down Market street to the Embarcadero!

Got a quick picnic lunch and took it to the top near the statue to eat and see the view. The day was perfect, cool yet sunny. Weekends are extremely busy. There is a nice children's play area. Lots of people walking their dogs or just chillin on the grass.

Super spot to kick back and relax. Some parts were a little strange at times, but aren't we all a little strange?!?! We took a frisbee, few bucks and flannels and we were set to play all day. It's a great park with an awesome view.

If your in the mission/ Castro area on a nice day this park is worth a visit. From reviews I was expecting more of an impressive view, the skyline is actually quite blocked off by other closer buildings but even so it’s a well kept, cute and friendly park to spend a warm afternoon. That being said, don’t go
out of your way if in SF for limited time- as it is just essentially a big open green space for friends to meet and relax.
