Description

Alamo Square is perhaps best known for its Painted Ladies. About 48,000 houses in the Edwardian and Victorian styles were built in San Francisco between 1850 and 1915 and many were painted in bright colors. Groups of these houses have become known as "Painted Ladies". Perhaps the most famous of these groups is the row of Victorian "Painted Ladies" at 710-720 Steiner Street. They are located right across from the park. Tour buses routinely stop at the park to allow tourists off to photograph the houses and enjoy the tremendous view over the city.

The play area at Alamo Square is heavily shaded. There are two separate play structures and areas for different ages. Both can be supervised easily. Both play structures are also fenced in. The biggest problem we encountered was running around the play areas wasn't very safe due to the large amounts of sand on the rubberized turf (a game of tag gone wrong).

There is much more green space to the park, especially on the other side of the hill from the play areas. We saw many people out enjoying the sun and walking their dogs.
