“Touristy, but worth it!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I rode the bus (an adventure in itself! Everyone was so helpful- i recommend it!) to this park. We were so excited to see the Ful House houses! We sat in the grass and took a milion pictures. I found the theme song on youtube, and we listened to it a few times.

It was rather crowded with tourists, and you can't actually go up to the houses, but it was just a really fun, special part of our trip.

Thank Nicole H

“Great area!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Not too far from the tour bus stop, we enjoyed the park. Very picturesque, taking photos of the famous houses from "Full House" for our daughter.

“Nice park with a familiar feel”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Its impossible not to think of Full house as you see the painted ladies and sing the theme song. At least it was for me. The view of the city behind the old row houses was beautiful and a nice surprise. It was peaceful yet fun and full of people hanging out in groups. Safe feeling area, too.

“Place for a Romantic Stroll”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Now this is one of the better places in SF to have a little evening stroll. Beautiful Houses in the surroundings and the park itself is very beautiful. Good place for a Romantic walk with your partner. Fun !

“Great place for hanging out”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Buy a nice bottle of wine, but some cheeses and hams and enjoy a picnic in Alamo square. Great for crowd watching!
