Mission Dolores

About Neighborhood

Nestled between the Castro neighborhood and Mission District, Mission Dolores is a vibrant community that proudly preserves its status as the oldest neighborhood in San Francisco. Its namesake derives from the first building in the city, a tiny adobe edifice constructed in 1776. 

Mission Dolores Park is a multi-level green expanse replete with tennis and basketball courts, a central playground, and views both of the mission and the city skyline beyond. Residents take to the grass to soak in the ample sunlight, hold picnics, walk dogs, and engage in athletic activity all year long. 

This quaint neighborhood is family-friendly, exploration-ready, and history-heavy; meanwhile, dining and entertainment opportunities abound on either side. Foreign Cinema, SPRO Coffee Lab, and Bi-Rite Creamery represent the diverse collection of restaurants, cafes, and ice cream shops that position residents at an arms’ length from the classic SF verve.
