Alamo Square Park

 

PARK REVIEW

The scenery makes the park. Located across the street from San Francisco's historic Victorian Painted Ladies is a small playground with tons of character. The equipment is decorated like the Victorian Row Houses. The park offers wonderful photo opportunities of San Francisco.
