The Duboce Triangle is a centrally located, mostly quaint residential neighborhood just below the slopes of Buena Vista Park, bounded by Market Street to the southeast, Castro Street on the West, Church Street on the east and Duboce Street on the north. While it is in close proximity to the neighborhoods of the Lower Haight, Castro / Eureka Valley, and the Mission District, its special character warrants a special mention.
Duboce Triangle is sometimes referred to as “Mint Hill”, after the United States Mint perched on the nearby steep rocky cliff overlooking the intersection of Market and Duboce streets. Due to its location east of Buena Vista Heights and Twin peaks, the area sees less fog than many places in San Francisco.
While Duboce Triangle’s main attraction is its namesake park, there are several smaller “pocket” parks in the neighborhood as well as lushly landscaped sidewalks, making it a haven for dog-lovers (this neighborhood hosts the annual DogFest).
This neighborhood also boasts well-maintained Victorian flats and apartment buildings as a result of San Francisco’s rejection of the large-scale demolition of Victorians and their replacement with slab-like public housing that marred the Western Addition in the 1960s. For this neighborhood, the city used the federal government’s slum clearance funds to renovate its mostly-19th century housing stock as well as to plant street trees and to widen sidewalks and narrow streets.
Duboce Triangle neighborhood has an impressive average Walk score of 98 and average Transit score of 100.
