Alamo Square, San Francisco

4.1
A neighborhood marked by some of the city's most distinctive architecture, Alamo Square is the home of the Painted Ladies, a row of Victorian houses with ornate facades and vibrant colors. Get a view of the neighborhood from Alamo Square Park, the neighborhood's namesake, at the top of the hill north of Hayes Street. On the perimeter of the park, you can view mansions where European consuls and American millionaires once lived, including the home of confectioner William Westerfeld. The park's views of the Golden Gate Bridge and its lawns and walkways attract visitors and residents for jogging, sports, and events.

  • This is one of the gems of San Francisco. It is well known as being adjacent to the famous Painted Ladies but the park has many sides and there is a fun off-leash dog area on the other side. Great place to bring a picnic.
  • Most people spend there time on the side where the painted ladies are. Don't do that. If you make your way through the park you'll notice there are better views and more to be seen. Do yourself a favor and don't just stay on the side where the painted ladies are. There is more to be seen.
  • Lovely open space on top of the city. The dogs had a frolic and we enjoyed the Winter sunshine. Peaceful.
  • My dog loves rolling around in the new grass here with the tons of other very friendly and playful pups. Great views of city!
  • Great Job, SF parks and rec., close down the men’s restroom and have all the men use the small bathroom next to the children’s playground, very smart, not.
