This park is very steep. It was filled with dogs everywhere. I went to get pics of pink ladies which look like they need good painting. I took bus 21 from union square and same bus back.

We went here for pics of the painted ladies. I grew up watching full house and just had to see those houses. It's a nice place to just walk and see great views of he city. Also there are lots of dogs playing. We took the 5 all the way there from union square/ market place.

Took the 21 bus from Market/Powell right to Alamo Square, nice little park with lots of dogs running about. Great view of Painted Ladies with modern SF in the background. Nice are to walk around: we walked around Haight-Ashbury and Mission afterwards and had great lunch at Ike's

This park is really beautiful. It's basically one big hill, with great views in every direction. The west side of the hill is primarily for dogs, and it's fun to sit on one of the benches and watch all the dogs playing. The east side of the hill has a big lawn overlooking the Painted Ladies with downtown San Francisco as their backdrop. This is a good spot for a photo opp and a little relaxation. The early part of the day tends to be warmer, but sunset is really pretty as well.
