When the sun breaks through the clouds in San Francisco, the Mission District feels it first. Thus, look to Dolores Park to find the first of the fair-weather fans in the most literal sense. Tennis and basketball courts, a soccer field, a children’s playground area and a dog play area as well as public restrooms make this one of the most popular family parks in San Francisco. Also noted for its spectacular panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline, Dolores Park is a highlight to any sunny day in San Francisco.
Dolores Park is two blocks south of Mission Dolores at the western edge of the Mission District. The Muni Metro J-Church streetcar line runs right through the park.
