Bring your dog and a beer! Extremely busy park with a great vibe. Guys are selling beer out of an eski walking around (not cheap so bring your own), lots of dogs, sports and music. Great place to chill out and have fun.

Love this park right on Dolores Street. It does get crowded on those rare warm San Francisco Days. The park has different zones, yes it's true... Gay Park, Dog Park, Family Park, etc... Pack a lunch and a blanket, come enjoy your day at the park

This is a lovely park, with beautiful views and plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by. Nice strolling around the streets looking at nearby architecture and houses as well as having a nice ice cream and relaxing.

I enjoyed this park. Like most parks in the city, it is hilly, which offers a great view. Dogs are allowed off leash. There is a small playground for children. The bathrooms were clean. I did witness a drug deal go down, but it was on the side of the park away from the playground.

This park is close to the Castro and Mission area of San Francisco. The park was recently undergone a very expensive makeover which was done very well. During the weekend it is jam-packed with locals and tourist enjoying the sunshine and one of the best views of the city and East Bay. Great place to spend a little time for... More

This over-used park seems to be constantly in progress of renovations. They should focus on clean-up and maintenance instead. Wonderful views from the upper reaches of the park, but weekends expect every frat bro' in the city to be hanging out here, getting drunk and leaving their trash for others to pick up.

The place to be on a sunny day in SF! Lots of good people watching and great views from all angles. Weekends it's a party scene with various substances, but you can also go and find a quiet spot to read a book. Excellent playground for kids.

It's surely a really great place to stay but there are many pusher in the garden and many other guys smoking in the tables. It's just weed but this shouldn't happen.

A nice respite, especially for families. Mission is a bit off the tourist path unless you are on a trek to see all CA missions on the Camino Real. You have to pay to get into Delores, the 6th Mission; my group did not want to see inside. We stayed in Mission so the park was a nice Sunday walk... 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.
