Glen Park - a hidden treasure - a 'suburban' San Francisco neighborhood

Glen Park - a hidden treasure - a 'suburban' San Francisco neighborhood

On the corner of Diamond and Bosworth, you will find several well-frequented
coffee houses, a couple of grocery stores, a cheese shop, pet store, hardware store, a bar, liquor store and several restaurants, including a French bistro, a Chinese restaurant, a pizza place and a Mexican taqueria -- all the makings of a neighborhood "village".

 If you want a home in the City, but with a suburban "feel", you have found a great place to live. This neighborhood was named after Glen Canyon Park where you can hike, bike, walk and play with your kids (and your dogs) in a beautiful meadow surrounded by eucalyptus trees and forest.

The Glen Park district is located to the south of Diamond Heights and Noe Valley, west of Bernal Heights, and east of Glen Canyon Park.  In 2006, a new multi-use, urban infill project opened in the heart of the village, complete with 15 condos and a fantastic natural foods grocery market - Canyon Market. You can get on Interstate 280 and head south to the Peninsula and Silicon Valley or take the Glen Park BART to downtown San Francisco. Muni bus lines that serve Glen Park are 23, 35, 36, 44 and 52 and the J Church Muni Metro Line.

Rental housing prices in Glen Park are not as high as some of the neighborhoods in the NE part of the City that are closer to downtown. You can lease a 1 bedroom apartment for under $2000 a month, a 2 bedroom in the $2000's and a 3 bedroom  in the $3000's. Similar apartments in the NE part of the City would rent for $1000 more per month. If you are looking for a more laid back place to live that has easy public transportation to Big City amenities and quick access to the South Bay - for a fraction of the price - consider this cozy village, Glen Park.
