Long Description:
"Dolores Park is a San Francisco, California, city park located in the neighborhood of Mission Dolores, at the western edge of the Mission District, which lies to the east of the park. To the west of the park is a hillside referred to as "Dolores Heights" or considered a part of the Castro neighborhood.

Dolores Park is two blocks tall by one block wide, based on the configuration of north-south and east-west blocks in that part of San Francisco. It is bounded by 18th Street on the north, 20th Street to the south, Dolores Street to the east and Church Street to the west. The northern end of Dolores Park is located directly across the street from Mission High School.

Dolores park offers several features: several tennis courts and a basketball court, a soccer field, a children's playground, and a dog play area. The southern half of the park is also notable for its views of the Mission district and downtown; the park also affords a striking view of the San Francisco Bay and the East Bay hills. Also notable is the routing of the Muni Metro J-Church streetcar line through the park. The J-Church travels down Church Street after emerging from the Market Street tunnel. Upon reaching 18th Street, the transit line goes through Dolores Park since Church Street between 18th and Hancock streets is too steep for a trolley to climb. The line reconnects with Church Street a few blocks later after it winds its way along the streetcar right-of-way that abuts residential backyards.

The park lies east of Twin Peaks in the warm and sunny microclimate of the Mission neighborhood. The park is popular among San Franciscans looking for outdoor relaxation and recreation." (visit link)
