Glen Park

Glen Park is a quiet, secluded-feeling residential neighborhood located at the southeastern edge of San Francisco’s central hills, the San Miguel Range. It includes the easternmost peak of the range known as Billy Goat Hill, as well as south and east slopes. The neighborhood follows the hill’s contours down to a small commercial district (“Downtown Glen Park”) at the intersection of Chenery and Diamond streets.

Glen Park borders Diamond Heights neighborhood to the northwest (along Diamond Heights Boulevard), Noe Valley to the north (along 30th Street), Bernal Heights to the east (along San Jose Avenue), and Sunnyside neighborhood to the south.

Despite its village feel (as some may say), this neighborhood is well served by public transport – in fact, Glen Park developed as a streetcar suburb in 1890s when San Francisco and San Mateo Electric Railway opened access to southern areas of the city. Today, transit is provided by the Glen Park BART station, J Church Muni Metro and several Muni bus lines with Interstate 280 being nearby.

While Glen Park is not known for the bustling entertainment and restaurant scenes, its picturesque streetscapes and village vibe lend its small restaurants, coffee shops, organic markets and independent boutiques an undeniable charm. In addition, Glen Park also boasts about seventy green acres and many hidden nature trails that weave through its forested hillsides.

Glen Park neighborhood has an average Walk score of 80 and average Transit score of 81.
