Washington Square - Review
The Washington Square is a famous recreation center of San Francisco. It’s primary attraction is the park, which is one of the better known in the city. Gardens, playgrounds, flowerbeds and sculptures make the park and excellent place to take the family out to for a few hours. A prominent construct here is the Washington Square Arch, built in 1989 to commemorate a 100 years of George Washington’s inauguration as POTUS.

Washington Square, San Francisco Reviews
I like how American people rest. They can just lay on the grass and relax. And it's awesome. Washington Square is definitely a great place to relax after work or and get some sun during the lunch time. I like the atmosphere + pizza place is really close so you can grab some slices of pizza and have lunch on the grass.
My old neighborhood in my old city really has more emotional memory than I thought or admit easily after looking at some of the pics of things in and around the park. Always a snack/ meal/ drink to be had before the hike up the hill to get home... or the pleasant walk down the hill, alone/ with friends/ the dog! This really is a meeting place to mesh the old/ new/ socialites/ artists... on the rare warm and sunny days the place is packed within people napping, tanning, picnics, frisbee and football, dogs.. a really great San Francisco place ! Super bonus are the summer movies in the park... many filmed right there as well. For a weekend visit or a neighborhood to settle down for the rest of your life.. this is a place to check out and then double, then triple check to just enjoy one of the oldest city parks in one of the city's oldest neighborhoods!
A nice small little Park, with some really cool scenery in the area like the giant church and lots of people hanging around. nice place to grab a coffee from one of the local shops and just hang out for 20 minutes.
My favorite Park in the city. Never over crowded (as opposed to Dolores Park) and always a nice park to sit in and chill for a while.
Getting off the Max to take the elevator up, opens you to access an array of delights with views of Mt. Hood and all sorts of venues including the zoo, rose gardens, Japanese zen gardens, to name a few. Bring your walking shoes or boots but most of all bring open eyes to take in the beauty you will find here.
