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.

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.
