Friends of Washington Square

Get Involved!

The Friends of Washington Square is a group of neighbors and friends dedicated to addressing ongoing needs; interfacing with community leaders, the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, and Parks Alliance; and acting as guardians of the park to help preserve and beautify this San Francisco treasure.
Who We Are

One of San Francisco’s three original parks, Washington Square was set aside as a public square in 1847 and has been the centerpiece of North Beach for more than 150 years.
