Welcome to Alamo Square

 
Alamo Square is a neighborhood part of the Western Addition. Although its limits are imprecise, they are commonly believed to be Webster Street on the east, Golden Gate Avenue on the north, Divisadero Street on the west, and Oak Street on the south. This neighborhood was spared the kinds of urban redevelopment efforts that were common elsewhere in the Western Addition. One of the perks of living in San Francisco is seeing the tops of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, and the Transamerica Pyramid from City Park. The City Hall in San Francisco may be seen from Fulton Street. A row of Victorian mansions on Steiner Street that face the park is featured prominently in the city's downtown images because of their appearance in photographs.
 

Alamo Square is a neighborhood and park located in the Western Addition in San Francisco, California. It is bounded east by Buchanan Street, on the north by Turk Street, on the west by Baker Street, and the south by Page Street Street.

The Alamo Square neighborhood's geographic and architectural focal point is four city blocks that dominate the entire city. These blocks sit atop a hill, overlooking a wide part of the city. Several notable buildings, including the "Painted Ladies," are located along the edge of the property. Hayes Street, which runs south to Steiner Street, divides the park into east and west halves. The Scott Street portion is west of Hayes Street. Alamo Hill, a watering hole located on the old trail from Mission Dolores to the Presidio, got its name from the lone cottonwood tree ("alamo" in Spanish). In 1856, Mayor James Van Ness, the mayor of San Francisco, founded "Alamo Square," a 12.7 acre (5.1 hectares) park around the city's famous watering hole.
