Iconic Alamo Square is recognized worldwide and is one of the most photographed spots in all of San Francisco. Though the views are still to die for and tourists continue to flock to "that place in the Full House intro," the park has seen better days. The restrooms are crumbling and dirty, the grass is dying, and walking paths are in poor condition. Thankfully, by 2014 all of that should change. San Francisco's Department of Parks and Recreation is gearing up to embark on an extensive renovation that'll include new restrooms, repaved pathways, a brand new irrigation system, and more colorful planting arrangements. Work will proceed in phases between July and December of 2014, at which point the freshly revamped park will be ready for its close-up. Now all that's left to do is oust those obnoxious tour buses.
