Once a Jewish cemetery, today Dolores Park is one of San Francisco’s favorite warm-weather destinations. On sunny weekends, the park’s three city blocks of soft grass fills up with groups of people picnicking and enjoying adult beverages. Recently renovated, Dolores Park has shiny new bathrooms, an updated playground, tennis and basketball courts and two off-leash dog play areas. When you’re done seeing and being seen, stop for an ice cream at the beloved Bi-Rite Creamery across the street

Great weekend spot to just lay out with a picnic blanket, picnic foods & drink (you can have open containers) with good company. Dolores Park has very much a beachy vibe – people spread out, laying in the sun as if it was the beach. The park is pretty hilly and vast, you can lounge around or bring a ball (tennis, basketball, etc) and toss that around. There’s vendors that go by (ice cream carts, etc) and people recycling your bottles, but all in all contributes to a great scene appreciated by the locals. It’s got great views of the city as well. I’m not a local to SF, but I’ve heard from many of my Bay Area friends that Dolores Park is near & dear to their hearts & within close proximity to the Mission, it’s a great place to take friends that aren’t residents of the bay.
