This two-part park on either side of Mission Creek in the South-of-Market Mission Bay district is the first phase of a neighborhood park system that eventually will encompass 43 acres of open space.
Mission Creek Park is divided into north and south areas by the waterway known as Mission Creek, an inlet of China Basin. The park is several blocks southwest of AT&T Ballpark.
The northern portion of the park runs parallel to Mission Creek between Fourth and Seventh Streets and north to Berry Street. On the Berry Street end is a fenced dog park where dogs can enjoy off-leash play. A tiled tiled pathway leads to a viewing platform overlooking 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 are sports courts and is a public boat launch for non-motorized boats, mainly kayaks.
The area on the south side of the creek is comprised of three acres of rolling green grass, trees, pathways, benches and a small outdoor amphitheater. There's also a pavilion available for special events, public restrooms, a water fountain seating areas.

Two parcels in this linear park are available for public use, including dog walking. The park begins at Terry Francois Boulevard and stretches west to Third Street between Mission Bay Boulevards north and south.
