The Dolores park is located in the Western edge of the Mission District and is just a stone's throw away from Mission Dolores Church, which is one of the 21 Californian Mission Churches. San Francisco has many public parks but the most popular and the most crowded (especially at weekends) is the Dolores Park. Why? since it offers a post card perfect view of the San Francisco Skyline and the parke is way bigger than in Alamo Park in Alamo Square and are less sloping hence the crowds of locals. You can also watch the assortwed games like soccer It is also known as "Dolores Beach". The proximity of the park to the Castro District also means that the crowd is heavily gay, but all sun worshipers are welcomed here. 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, downtown, the San Francisco Bay and the East Bay. Also notable is the routing of the Muni Metro J-Church streetcar line through the park.
