Known around the world for its Victorian row homes, this spectacular hilltop park is an ideal spot for taking photos. The park is currently undergoing renovations and will reopen Spring 2017. While under construction, a viewing area will remain open to see the infamous Painted Ladies. Please remember to pack out your trash as this is a Leave No Trace Park.

A nice park with dog area and great views of the city. There is a lot of people around depending on time of day. I suggest walking the perimeter of the park to take in the various architectural styles of homes.

The picturesque Victorian row houses at Alamo Square are among the most photographed buildings in San Francisco. The buildings give a good idea of what San Francisco looked like at the end of the nineteenth century. Around 1850, San Francisco mayor set atop some area...More

This is a nice place to relax and walk away from the busy city life. It features the "Painted Ladies", including the house from Full House, which makes it interesting. It is very well kept with green grass, beautiful flowers and nice trees. It also...More

The park itself is pretty nice with an interesting view into the city. The dog park is fun to visit to watch the dog's playing around. The "Painted Ladies" are overblown. They are just a bunch of houses that really aren't that interesting if you've...More

Great placeee to relax!! you can almost see a 360 SF view. Can do a picnic, read, relax. The construction are very beatiful with colonial houses. You have to go and take a lot of pics.

Pretty, but just some houses. If you aren't really keen to see them, it would be ok to skip it. This attraction took about five minutes.

They don't allow tour busses so I would assume they won't allow a large van. There are signs posted along the streets.
