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.

I always carry a blanket when we travel. On this day, we spread it out on the grass at Alamo Square, snuggled up in the sun, and snoozed for 30 minutes. We woke up and listened to music, people watched, and admired the dozens of...More

It’s a lovely park with beautiful views. Check out the painted ladies. Then if you like dogs wander over to the dog park section and give the pooches a pat. Afterwards we had a little walk around the residential area, it’s really pretty and chilled.

The big grass area area is not really very big. It is on an incline that leans toward the painted ladies. It is a nice place to hang out, maybe picnic but I rated it average. There is really nothing overly special about it. It...More

I’d heard of the painted ladies, but not so much of the Alamo Square area. It is a picturesque area, well worth getting off the bus and wandering, sitting and taking in the lovely views and getting some great pictures. The locals really maintain their...More

This is a cute green city Park on the top of a small hill, where the locals go to relax, have a leisurely picnic with the family, and take the dogs for a walk. The tourists mostly come for the view of the “Painted Ladies”...More
