The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department’s Mission is to provide enriching recreational activities, maintain beautiful parks and preserve the environment for the well-being of our diverse community. The roots of San Francisco’s Recreation and Park Department stretch back to the 1870s. Washington Square is one of the City’s first parks, established in 1847. A popular North Beach stop for visitors and locals alike, this lively urban oasis is bordered by sidewalk cafes and restaurants, as well as Saint Peter & Paul’s Church. The Square is a natural community gathering place with a long and fascinating history, hosting festivals, free movie nights and other special events throughout the year. It’s also a great spot to people-watch, walk your dog, toss a Frisbee or just relax on the lawn on a sunny day.
