Get a view of the neighborhood from Alamo Square Park, the neighborhood's namesake, at the top of the hill north of Hayes Street. On the perimeter of the park, you can view mansions where European consuls and American millionaires once lived, including the home of confectioner William Westerfeld. The park's views of the Golden Gate Bridge and its lawns and walkways attract visitors and residents for jogging, sports, and events.
