Nice park with a great view
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great little park on the hill with the iconic view of downtown with the painted ladies. The park does offer some great views of downtown but the houses or “ painted ladies” could use some paint. On our trip in September the colors were very faded and could use some sprucing up but definitely worth a visit.

Alamo Park a beautiful and cute park. What I love the most about this park was that you can seat anywhere on the grass around here or on the benches that they also have.
The view is simply gorgeous as you can see in the pictures!
The weather was fantastic when we went in June and that helped a lot ❤️💚

View & a pretty park too
Jun 2021 • Couples
We climb to the top of Alabama square for the views of the painted ladies and beautiful Victorian homes. However once we were at the top we saw a beautiful flowers and foliage, a charming playground with miniature painted ladies, dog runs, places to sit, tennis courts, a coffee truck, clean restrooms with soap and toilet paper … And friendly people.

There are warnings that there are coyotes in the area and not to leave valuables in your car.

Beautiful place. Historical place. When you come here you feel some kind of relaxation. Every house has its own view and i would say soul. Different colors and interesting decisions create atmosphere of comfort and rest.

Park and the Houses
Jan 2020
One comes here to see the famous Painted Ladies, and they are indeed beautiful. I remember when this park was dangerous; not so anymore as this is the home of the rich. Nice green space in a nicely-preserved part of town.

Famous image of San Francisco
Sep 2019
This square is famous for the row of Victorian houses known as the Painted Ladies. They were also famous for appearing in the opening credits of Full House. The houses are quite nice and well maintained compared to others in San Francisco. The view of the houses and the skyline in the background is also very nice.

A lovely place where you enjoy the sun. And admiring the beautiful view of the painted houses. A park and play area for children, a place for dogs lovers to reunite and enjoy.

View the Painted ladies - Full House fans must stop here.
Nov 2019
As fans of Full House - my nieces, my daughter and I stopped at Alamo Park.
We had a fun time taking videos, with the Full House theme song in the background.

Be careful walking on the grass as the hill is a bit steep - for those of us over a certain age.
Loads of people in the park, with children, walking dogs, taking photos.
