Mission Hills Park, also known as Pioneer Park, is located in the middle of Mission Hills, Hillcrest and Middletown. The park was one of the first cemeteries in San Diego and tombstones of Pioneers are still at the park. The park is said to go back as far as the late 1800's. It is a fairly large park with a grass area and a kid's playground. It can be permitted for picnics and weddings with a capacity of 750, but no inflatables. Food is allowed but no glass containers, there is also a restroom on site.

Mission Hills Park is available from 6:00 a.m. to dusk. The park is located at 1521 Washington Place, where University Avenue and Washington Street split. From Interstate 5, exit Washington Street and head east. There is a small parking lot limited to a handful of cars and there is also street parking.
