Nestled in between the Castro and the Mission District, this neighborhood is home to one of the biggest attractions on a bright, sunny San Francisco day; Dolores Park. The popular hillside spot spans two blocks long and offers visitors a variety of outdoor activities including one basketball court, a handful of tennis courts, and a soccer field. Once the temps exceed 65 degrees, hundreds of people flock to the area to soak up the sun, enjoy live music, picnic with friends, take their dogs out for a stroll, and play a variety of lawn games. There is an essence to Mission Dolores that is a hybrid of the Mission District and Castro, which creates a unique confluence.
