Glen Park is one of San Francisco’s most impeccably balanced neighborhoods, with just the right amount of everything to satisfy the essential needs of city dwellers in a suburban oasis.
With the city’s public transportation lines stopping throughout the neighborhood, including its own major Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station, residents can reach every corner of the city at a moment’s notice.
A majority of the homes in Glen Park were built prior to the 1920s as development began in the late 19th century. Bungalow-style walk-ups line the hills with newer homes up at the highest points boasting large panoramic windows to take in the views.
At its western edge, part of the expansive Glen Canyon Park offers a large shared green space while the rolling residential streets lead into the village area of Glen Park at the intersection of Chenery and Diamond streets. The neighborhood is known for its distinctive mom-and-pop businesses and is bubbling with coffee shops, organic markets, and independent boutiques. Close neighboring districts like Noe Valley to the north and Bernal Heights to the east also offer an extended variety of essentials to city living.
While Glen Park is a secluded residential pocket in San Francisco, its innate charm anchors the neighborhood as a classic San Franciscan experience with a village-like feel.
