Owner description: Known around the world for its Victorian row homes, this spectacular hilltop park is an ideal spot for taking photos. The park is currently undergoing renovations and will reopen Spring 2017. While under construction, a viewing area will remain open to see the infamous Painted Ladies. Please remember to pack out your trash as this is a Leave No Trace Park.

As another reviewer says some
Of the painted ladies are under renovation at the moment (and one or two could do with the same treatment).

Well worth a visit as it is pretty and with great views assuming it isn't foggy and there is a nice park to stroll and sit. It's well worth an hour of your time of in the area.

Two caveats, apart from the houses and the park there is nothing to see and secondly if on one of the hop on tour buses, they don't go past them as they have been banned, so will drop you off a short walk away.

“Painted Ladies under renovation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Took a bus 21 to Alamo Square to see the Painted Ladies. However, the houses were under renovation. The view of the city from atop of Alamo Square is pretty good. There were people bringing their dogs to the park for a picnic. A good place to relax but may be rowdy depends on the crowds.

“Bauatiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Visit this park if not just to see the painted ladies surrounding, but to walk the many streets around it. Alamo square is an entire historic district, and painted ladies are everywhere for your viewing pleasure. The park itself is also very dog friendly, with an off leash section.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

This park is very picturesque as it shows Victorian San Fran with the modern city scape in the background. The only disappointment was that 2 of the houses on Postcard Row were being renovated so we didn't get very good pics.

“Decent views from this park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped here to see the painted ladies, aka the Full House houses. We were a little disappointed that many of them were being painted or undergoing construction, but we got some photos nonetheless. The park itself is a nice place for a walk or picnic, and there are (old, but serviceable) public restrooms.
