Lonely Planet review

Semiprofessional tanning, taco picnics and a Hunky Jesus Contest every Easter: welcome to San Francisco's sunny side. Dolores Park has something for everyone, from street ball and tennis to the Mayan pyramid playground (sorry kids: no human sacrifice allowed). Political protests and other favorite local sports happen year-round and there are free movie nights and Mime Troupe performances in summer.

Climb to the upper southwest corner for the best views of downtown, framed by palm trees. Flat patches are generally reserved for soccer games, cultural festivals, candlelight vigils and ultimate Frisbee. Second-hand highs copped near the bathroom may have you chasing the helados (ice-cream) cart.
