Notes: Designed for older (6 - 12) children, the playground is frequently used by students and programs from nearby schools. Swings are really the only option for the infant/toddler set, but the boat is always a big draw for younger ones. Kids of all ages appreciate the ubiquitous ice cream vendors. The grassy area between the playground and the clubhouse is a de facto dog run and there are no fences around the playground so watch your children and unprotected food items.
Renovations to the entire park have stalled, but the Friends of Dolores Park Playground are working to upgrade the playground equipment in 2009/10. Planning has started!
