MISSION CREEK PARK
Mission Creek Park is the first of many parks and open spaces being developed in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. Mission Creek Park is divided into north and south areas by the waterway known as Mission Creek. The park is located just several blocks southwest of AT&T Ballpark. The area located on the south side of the creek is comprised of 3 acres of rolling green grass, trees, pathways, benches and a small outdoor amphitheatre. On the west side of this portion of the park is a floor to ceiling glass and brick Pavilion that is available for special events. Available near this beautiful building are public restrooms, a water fountain and seating areas.
The northern portion of Mission Creek Park runs parallel to Mission Creek between Fourth and Seventh Streets. Here you will find a tiled pathway leading to a viewing platform that overlooks Mission Creek. Benches are strategically placed along this esplanade so that one can rest and enjoy the many landscape and water features along with the abundance of waterfowl that visit the area. Further down the esplanade is a public boat launch for non-motorized boats, mainly kayaks. Three types of sports courts are located in this area: basketball, sand volleyball and a tennis court. Toward the end of Berry Street is a fenced dog play area where dogs may enjoy off leash activities. The Park Maintenance Facility is also located at this end of the park at: 451 Berry Street.
