    Beautiful old Victorian houses you have got to see. It's just part of San Francisco.
  • Andrew C.
    Very anticlimactic... The park is being renovated, so there are so many tourists trying to get their picture in!!! Plus the bright colour of the houses are not as pronounced as thought
  • Jacob B.
    Note that the park will be closed until 2017. You can still see the painted ladies but not from the same viewpoint as full house!
  • Diana M.
    It is a nice place although looks better on pictures than in reality

    "Painted ladies" is a term in American architecture used for Victorian and Edwardian houses and buildings painted in three or more colors that embellish or enhance their architectural details.

    If you go high enough on the hill you can get a good view of SF in the background.

    It's cool and all but when I went late August 2015 the grass was dry and brown not too green. But still pretty none the less

    Parking around the park can be a challenge, but worth the sight and overall time at the park.

    Beautiful views of downtown and the Painted Ladies! Hum the Full House theme song to yourself. Also, there are no tour buses within 5 blocks so it's quiet and relaxing.

    Famous painted ladies are across from Alamo Square. If you want to take a picture, take it across the street at the top of the hill. If not, driving by is also nice.
