One of the city's most popular park located between the Mission District and the Castro/Noe Valley neighborhoods. On sunny afternoons people flock to the park to play, picnic, lounge, walk their dogs, and enjoy spectacular views of the city's skyline and beyond. Please remember to pack out your trash, use cans instead of glass, and don't leave cigarette butts behind. This is a Leave no Trace park and bins are located around the perimeter of the park.

Pretty park but full of young people drinking and smoking. Not a park for kids. Seems safe but wouldnt return, not my thing.

This park gets extremely busy on a weekend as soon as the sun comes out. There will be large groups playing music and eating. The tennis courts are good and accessible. The view from the top of the park is good, you can see a lot of the city.

Nice place for picnic that is convenient for public transport. Nice days will be crowded with lots of folks. Expect dogs, people drinking beers and other recreational activities

For a real flavor of San Francisco history, visit Mission Delores. The history is interesting and the church is beautiful. Please visit the little garden too. This place is a gem.

My husband and I went to Mission Dolores Park to just chill and it was incredible. Musicians and a DJ were playing free music and the entire scene was very relaxed. LOVED IT.

I've visited this park repeatedly during visits to San Francisco (staying in nearby Noe Valley). Particularly enjoy Saturdays afternoons, when musicians are playing, and early weekday mornings, when dogs and their owners converge on a particular area where the pets romp leash-free. The play area is very attractive and the kids seem to enjoy it.

My wife and I lived across the street from the park when we first moved here. We went for a walk in the park one time. Nuff said.

Alcatratz, Golden Gate, Pier 39, Lombardi Street, the old MUNI......and what? Mission Dolores Park I believe must put into the aforementioned category of "must thing to do in SF". It is slightly up on the hill where you can view the city in panorama. Eating a burrito from the famous taqueiras and walking to the park is probably the best... More

Just redone, beautiful outside space but it can fill up quickly. Good spot for a picnic lunch if it's a nice day. There are a few lunch places near.
