Owner description: 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.

When we visited end of June, large part of the park was under renovation. However, a part of it was still open with people enjoying themselves, pick-nicking or getting together with friends.
You have a great panoramic view over down-town from here.

Dolores park tends to be filled with people, so have something to distinguish your group if youre having others meet you there. The higher area has a playground for kids, while the lower area most people "sunbathe", have picnic, drink, smoke weed, have their dogs play, play frisbee, etc. For the sunny days, it's a great location. 'Cinco de Mayo', Pride, and other festive days it gets suuuper packed. But it's a fun kind of mayhem. Currently, they're doing some restoration so the lower portion is out.
The park is also in the Mission/Castro area, so food and drink options are a few minutes walk away. But beware the port-a-potty, they are pungent.

Dolores Park has been a "happening" place in San Francisco for years. Large city park with a super kids playground...quite a bit different than regular parks and kids love it. Large grassy area for picnics, kite flying, etc. Note: lower part of the park is currently under restoration and torn up. Don't know the timing for completion, but really shouldn't interfere too much. As you might suspect, this is very close to Dolores Mission and a nice bonus stop for visitors

I take it, it's where hipsters hang out, where people meet, relax, laugh, play frisbee and watch weird buskers doing robot-dances. It looks a little more edgy than your usual park, but also more interesting - plus, with all those families taking their kids to the playground in the park, it can't be that edgy. I stayed there just an hour or so, but it made me feel like I would like to hang out in that place on a regular basis.

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.
