Washington Square is a park in the North Beach district of San Francisco, California. The popular destination, for both locals and tourists, is surrounded by eating establishments such as the Liguria Bakery as well as the Sts. Peter and Paul Church.
Director Don Siegel features the church and the square in scenes from the 1971 movie, Dirty Harry. The church, and nearby Dante Building, are the setting of sniper attacks by the "Scorpio Killer". The park and surrounding area is also featured in the 2000 film, Bedazzled. Many chapters in Richard Brautigan's 1967 novel Trout Fishing in America take place in Washington Square.
