Very nice park to relaxing and simply leisure for a couple of hours. The art and sculptures around make the park much nicer.

There's just so much to do in San Francisco, that sometimes you need to slow it down and take a meandering walk through Alamo Square. There's a small playground and a dog play area and lovely flowers along the way. Take one path, then try another. I hope you enjoy this little green spot in the city!

Any fan of the TV show Full House will recognize this area and it's particular view of the rowhouses, the Painted Ladies, if you will. The area is beautiful, as is almost all of San Francisco, but there is nothing that particularly stands out. It is fun to get a picture for those who loved the aforementioned television program, and... More

This is a park across from the Painted Ladies and the homes that were used on Full House. It is much nicer to go here and take pictures of the homes.

Worth it to stop by and see the Painted Ladies. The park was nice to walk through and had a dog park. Would recommend going during the day as the areas around it aren't the best.

This is a relaxing place. There is a park there and it is relaxing to visit. You may want to do your research to find out which house is the one that you want to get your picture taken with as there are no markings/signs indicating which house amount the row of houses was the one of Full House fame...

Couldn't resist a visit to Alamo Square, being big fans of Full House back in the day.Cute little park with great view of the Painted Ladies and the San Francisco skyline in the background. Also loved seeing all the happy doggies running around off-leash in a portion of the park. Nice spot to just sit, relax and enjoy the view!

*I actually went in December 2006, they make you put a date* I loved going to Alamo Square. It was so peaceful and relaxing. I mainly wanted to go here because of the Full House opening. But it was so worth it. It would be a great place to come and relax, have a picnic or anything like that really.... More

Very peaceful retreat and the most epic San Francisco views you can ask for. And really pretty neighborhood with pretty homes around the area. Grab a picnic and chill at the park. Take the muni 22 bus down the hill from there (down Fillmore) and you will go through beautiful Pacific Heights neighborhood and eventually to the Marina, or get... More
