Don’t forget your camera: historic Alamo Square offers quintessential scenes of the City, including the famous ‘Painted Ladies’ of Postcard Row. This photogenic hilltop has appeared in numerous TV and film productions, such as the sitcom ‘Full House.’
Fame aside, the abundant lawns, flowerbeds and willows have made this park a well-loved play space for generations. Youngsters flock to the dual-level playground, while the off-leash area is popular with dogs (and dog parents).

New park benches, picnic tables, and dual-stream garbage/recycling cans will be coming to Alamo Square later this summer. Gardeners from the Recreation and Park Department have also continued to beautify the park with new drought-tolerant and pollinator-friendly plants.
