Love the Painted Ladies, the views of the city, and the neighboorhood. We grabbed lunch at a neighboorhood spot, walked here, and had a peaceful afternoon. Parking can be difficult, but can be found.

I wanted to see the "pained ladies" Victorian houses. They are neat to see. The park is at a high point in the city, and the views are great from there.

The houses here are just architecturally very beautiful with many intricate details. We walked around the park and took many photos. It's a little further out and we had a car so it wasn't too hard to get to but difficult to find parking (just like anywhere else in SF). Definitely worth the visit especially if you're a fan of...

Always a nice place to visit. Very good view of downtown San Francisco. The square is surrounded by very pretty buildings.

Very beautiful park with great view of the surroundings. It's worth a walk and it won't take you more than an hour to explore the region.

Alamo Square is your average tourist spot in San Francisco, mainly because of the Painted Ladies and photo opportunities. While it's a small city park, it is a nice getaway from the constant sounds of traffic and city life. It's a nice place to walk around, and you're sure to see lots of dogs and families playing in the park.... More

This is a pretty little urban park that happens to have the world famous painted ladies on one side of it. There are also several other lovely Victorian houses, however 45 minutes is probably plenty of time to spend there - unless you pack a picnic and have lunch in the park.
