Summer days are best whiled away on a beach towel here, along with just about everyone else in San Francisco. Music, beach volleyball and venders selling weed brownies abound, providing ample entertainment (and snacks) for a day-long stint of doing next to nothing.Recommended for:

One of the coolest places to hang in SF on a sunny day. Great views from the top of the hill. Good place to picnic or throw the frisbee. Also got a great playground for the kids.
If you are lucky enough to show up when some sort of celebration/demonstration is going on here (as happens a lot) you are likely to get a view of San Francisco in all its eccentric glory.Recommended for:

On a nice sunny summer afternoon, you want to relax and play frisbee here or walk the dog. Make a picnic basket and head over there around 12 noon and just relax and enjoy the view. A must see SF view from here!

This parked is loved by tourists and locals. Perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors with friends, families or by yourself.
My friends and I had our mini picnic on our last day in sf. We saw a lot of dogs and children. Live music near the playground with toddlers dancing around made my heart smile. Some of us couldn't resist playing in the playground with the kids.
Tip: best view is at the top of the long slide
Tip2: yummy ice cream nearby, I forgot the name but it's really popular.Recommended for:

Well when you live in a big city you want a big park right? Well Here is one of the nicest ones in Frisco. There is a lot of open grassy areas on a gentle to steep (partially terraced) slope.
The playground area is rather large and has the rubber flooring that has replaced sand. To walk the circumference of the park would be close to a mile it looks like. There is also a concrete path that splits the park into separate areas.
Parking around here is really tough for many reasons, several churches, the park, some shopping, and a HS are right here on the edge of the park.
Pro Tip: After hitting up Bi-Rite for ice cream (if you want to wait in line) this park is the perfect place to eat it!
There are several tennis courts, port-a-potties, lots of palm trees all over the place here. It is definitely a fun place to rest for a minute or two and take a few pics of SF in the distance... the view is relaxing as can be. Its also kinda funny to see a lot of people laying out fully clothed taking in the sun. Yeah I thought that was kinda weird as well.
None the less... this place seems like a great one to relax, play, workout, or just spend some time with friends :)Recommended for:

Dolores loves people, particularly the beautiful hipsters that frequent her home. She loves fine wine and cheese, bread and tapenade, and the feeling of a soft patchwork quilt resting gently upon her breast. Happy children and classic films make her smile, and she welcomes both even on the coldest of nights. Dolores loves the light from the setting sun, illuminating her blades of grass with a vast calming glow. Most of all, Dolores loves me and I love her and we are happy together, for we are both hopeless romantics.
But Dolores doesn't like it when your dog poops on her, so please stop it.Recommended for:

No spring weekend is complete without a trip to Dolores Park. Especially now that the construction is done. The scene is fantastic - dogs, people, hoola hoops...
Open mind required - lots of legal and illigal imbibing goes on on the grassy knolls, but the attitude is friendly and San Francisco sunshine never feels as good as when you know most of the country is still covered in snow. Bring a blanket - sometimes the grass is wet. Food and provisions are nearby - stay for the day!

When I first moved to the city, I randomly met and had dinner with my now-best-friend. After dinner, he decided he wanted to show me the best view in the city. We talked as we walked, chatting about this and that. Before I knew it, we were at the top of Dolores Park. He told me to turn around. I gasped. What a view, indeed.
It's been 3 years since then and I still marvel at the view on a clear, sunny Sunday. I find myself at the southwest corner of Dolores Park most nice weekends; the gay beach beckons-- it's the social event of the day. As the name suggests, the southwest section of the park is generally full of gay park-goers in shorts (or even speedos), tanning, drinking and lazing the day away.
If that's not your thing, it's a big park (with lots of other sections), and everyone gets along.
If you get hot, head on down to BiRite Creamery for a tasty treat, another San Francisco staple. The two really go hand-in-hand, Dolores Park and BiRite.Recommended for:

I don't think it's necessarily the cleanest or prettiest park in San Francisco, but Dolores Park is definitely the best place to take in all of what San Francisco has to offer in people watching. From hoola-hoopers, slack rope walkers, fire juggling and even jello fights, you're bound to be surprised with a new sight every time you stop by.
The park is also located next to some great eats. On the kitty corner, there's Bi-Rite Ice Creamery. Down the street you have other places like Pizzeria Delfina and Tartine Bakery.

Whether it's a community festival or a picnic with friends, this park captures the sunshine. Best place to have a picnic is the southwest corner (the highest corner) of the park with a view of the city skyline, bay, and bay bridge. Plenty of surrounding restaurants, bars, and shops to complete a day of enjoying life. Nearby grocery Bi-Rite for picnic fixings in a pinch,
