The square is a cute place, great for pictures, it's where they have the seven sisters the seven houses that look alike that was featured in the show full house.

A great park for hanging out. Views of downtown, the painted ladies, and even the Golden Gate Bridge. Don't forget to walk around the park there's views from all sides and bring a sweater it's chilly at times. There's a bathroom, tennis courts, and a playground in the middle of the park.

This was a must do for us since we grew up watching Full House. This is a great park with awesome views! We visited the actual Full House house which is a few miles away first and then came here which is way more fun than looking at a house on a residential street.

We did nearly miss this one, but it was one of the really impressive parts of our visit. The park is not a tourist place, feels like all local students and local people being here just enjoying the view on San Francisco. So, it is quite relaxing to be a bit away from the masses. But the view is impressive,... More

We came here to see the painted ladies, and it was not a disappointment. They were beautiful and unique, just like San Francisco itself. It was good to get outside of Union Square where we were staying and to see the outer neighborhoods of the city. We took the bus, and it was easy enough to navigate it all with... More

Came here to view the famous painted ladies. On a clear day like we had there is a brilliant city backdrop. The park is great to sit and have lunch and seemed quiet yet safe.

I started watching Full House when I was 10 years old, and I never thought I'd actually get to have a picnic at Alamo Square on day, with the Painted Ladies and downtown San Francisco in the background. I sure dreamed about it though. The experience was great. There was fog in the distance and the square was a bit... More

None of these homes are the actual house full house was taped in but they are the infamous houses in the theme song. Being a fan of the show, I am so glad I saw them! Victorian homes are beautiful!
