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.

Quite far out To snap a photo of a row of houses. Ok it might mean more to some people. But for someone from the UK. Yep. Houses. Shall we got to the pub?

This is it! The most iconic view in San Francisco. The painted ladies of Alamo Square! The park itself has a great vista for one of the best views of the City By the Bay, but also has a dog run, playground and several tennis courts. The streets (on all 4 sides) are lined with the beauty of wonderful examples... More

The park has construction fencing around it is not worth spending much time, but the view of the Painted Ladies and downtown is iconic. Worth a 10 minute stop on your driving tour of the neighborhoods.

Cmon folks-leave the people who live in these houses alone. There are better views elsewhere. They are.

There was construction on the park so it was a little crowded when we went on the weekend, so watch out for tourists (including you).

Alamo Square and Park on the western addition is probably mostly known as the best spot to view the ‘Painted Ladies’, but it offers a lot more. There are many residences in the neighborhood and at the center is this park. The park is a very popular doggie walk area, has a tennis court, benches, grassy area, trees, and restrooms... More

This is a great little spot that you can get to via the city tour bus. The actual square facing the famous houses is quite nice and may be worth packing a picnic and sitting in there for a while. It's not a big place so not much time is needed, but it's still quite nice and not over crowded

Some beautiful Victorian homes. These homes have been around for a long time, and still look amazing. I love visiting Alamo Square for a quiet afternoon when I'm in SF.

We remembered this from Full House and the initial impression was a little disappointing as they were re seeding the grassed area across the road. But the houses are amazing. the painted ladies are just a small example of just fabulous architecture of the time. Great to walk around and look.
