Killer views of the City and the best darn people watching anywhere!

This is a great microcosm of San Francisco especially on a nice sunny day. Right in between the Castro and the Mission there are lots of coffee shops, bars and food near by. You... read more

While we had a small lunch with my 2 young children just at the entrance of the park, we have been bullied by "local" people ... I highly not recommend it for family when you are out of peak season. I agree, Beautiful sight, nice playground ... What a shame!

This is a great microcosm of San Francisco especially on a nice sunny day. Right in between the Castro and the Mission there are lots of coffee shops, bars and food near by. You might even get the chance to buy edibles from someone in the park too. This is a great place to just sit, watch, watch some more... More

I was travelling alone in SF and decided to buy a simple burger and have it at this park as the sun set. It's not a big park but a nice change from the busyness of the usual tourist attractions like Market Street or Whart area.

On our stroll through mission disctrict we ended up in this beautiful gem overlooking the city. It was on a warm saturday what explained the huge crowd chilling (and drinking) in the park. Take a break and enjoy the view on the city! This is one of the best spots in San Fran!

Good spot to watch all the wacky and weird folks who make up San Francisco culture. Keep an eye out for the Truffle Man.

Great restored historic park with fun things for youth as well as comfortable benches with great views for all spread out in the large park. Just a short Distance from Historic Mission Dolores and friendly waling on Valencia Street corridor.

If the sky's blue and you want to chill and hang out, just soak in the atmosphere and people watch, this is THE place. Busy with locals, people watch galore, take a picnic blanket and supplies and just hang out. Great city views. Park benches on the far side mark a great spot for the views. Watching the jets fly...

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.
