Tucked away from much of the city’s hustle and bustle by sprawling Glen Canyon Park, the Glen Park neighborhood has the feel of a small, inclusive village. Conveniently served by a BART station and easy freeway access, residents can find themselves downtown or headed to the South Bay in no time. Just south of Noe Valley, Glen Park offers much of the same small-town feeling at more affordable prices. The area is quite popular with families who want to enjoy city living in a more peaceful corner of San Francisco.Known as “the Village,” the neighborhood’s commercial strip is centered at the intersection of Diamond and Chenery streets near the Glen Park BART station. Here you’ll find charming mom-and-pop shops, a number of trendy restaurants and old-fashioned cafes and more! Glen Park offers a variety of housing types, from single-family homes to multi-unit buildings.
A wide variety of architectural types can be found here as well. “Lovely Laidley” Street offers a mini-tour of the neighborhood’s architectural spectrum. Many homes in the neighborhood also boast incredible views.
The neighborhood is ideal for those who find enjoying the outdoors an absolute must. Glen Canyon Park occupies nearly 70 acres and offers miles of hiking trails. Walter Haas Park sits atop the hill and could definitely compete for the title of best bay views from a swing set.
