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.

A perfect place to hang out on a weekend. There will be some artists doing music, you can get something to dring and nab on nearby (Rite-Aid for example), get there, and just relax. Nice views of the city and easy to access with Muni

This is the warmest spot in The city and a great place to chill out with friends. Bring a picnic on a nice day and sit back and watch the living room of San Francisco entertain you. Didn't bring a drink? If you wait you might have an entrepreneur offer you a rum filled coconut. Getting snacky? There are many... More

Delores Park is a most interesting place. If the sun is scheduled to be out...then this place will be busy! The younger set like to come and hang out/socialize. Some drink, some smoke, some chill...there is a bit of everything here. A beautiful park...that many times gets a bit overused. Come early, and bring your picnic...or favorite brew. It is... More

I visit San Francisco about 4 times a year and every time I find myself spending most of my time in Mission district and Dolores Park. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays large amounts of people gather at the park to chill and enjoy each other and the beautiful views. Nothing but happy vibes here :-) I highly recommend a visit...

I love parks and this is a terrific neighborhood spot. Very large on the hillside with plenty of lawn area to hang out. Large area for kids in play activities with these amazing long slides. And I tried one. The views look north over the city in the distance which is expensive to the west. The Mission San Francisco is... More

Went with my cousin and her dog and my son to this park to burn a bit of energy. Very well laid out and maintained . Excellent children's playground with great slides and climbing sculptures . We threw balls for the dog in this dog friendly park and it was nice to see the native San Franciscans at play.

This park has so many fond memories for me. I saw Santana here in the late 60's. I have sat there in the sunlight with my adult daughter for a children's birthday party in the late 2000's. When it is sunny on the weekend it seems to be a destination, so bring a blanket and a book and people watch.... More

We checked out the mission and decided it was nice, but not a must for your San Francisco vacation. There are a few new yuppie shops and things to see, but nothing to write home about. The actual mission Dolores costs money to tour, as do most San Francisco attractions.

The park was buzzing on a Sunday afternoon in November. A great place to hand out see performers, or just be with friends. Will be back soon!

Staying in Mission District

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods in the country.
