"Washington Square Park" Washington Square Park Tip by jadedmuse
Washington Square Park, San Francisco: 10 reviews and 29 photos
This is a favorite little park among locals and even tourists can appreciate its history - smack in the middle of the gentrified yet still colorful North Beach area (one of my favorite neighborhoods in SF), and overlooking the famous Sts. Peter and Paul Church (where Marilyn Monroe was photographed with Joe DiMaggio after they married).
I happened to be there last time when a festival was taking place, complete with live music, frisbee throwing, fun-in-the-sun lovin' locals stretched out on blankets and just relaxing....even the mayor made an impromptu appearance. it was fantastic.
The park was authorized as a public square back in 1850, and was a temporary home to a number of displaced people after the 1906 earthquake. It somehow seems to provide the same refuge and relaxation today.
