Homes for sale in Glen Park have a unique, historical charm. Perhaps the last "Undiscovered" neighborhood in San Francisco is Glen Park, a compact neighborhood of Victorian Era cottages, and California Bungalows. Tucked below the steep, wild slopes of Glen Canyon, with its open vistas, the homes here feel almost like an urban village.
Glen Park has its own library, hardware store, favorite greasy spoon, and dry cleaner. The retailers along Diamond, Bosworth, and Chenery streets are mainly Mom and Pop. Of course, since this is part of San Francisco, there are coffee shops, bakeries, and fine food merchants. Ethnic cuisine runs the gamut from Le Pettit Laurent Bistrot Francais, and Osha Thai Cafe to La Corneta Taqueria. Newcomers to the neighborhood should visit the independent bookstore, Bird & Becket Books and Records that specializes in the history and culture of San Francisco.
Glen Park City Park offers 70 acres of urban recreation. 63 acres are designated as an undeveloped "Natural Area" where hawks and owls nest among the rock outcrops, which local climbers call the best bouldering in the city. Developed facilities include a community recreation center, ball fields and tennis courts, and playgrounds for kids.
For those working in downtown San Francisco, the BART Station at Bosworth Street is within walking distance, as is the J-Church MUNI trolley. The on-ramp to Interstate 280 makes for a rapid commute to Silicon Valley and easy access to HWY 1 and the Pacific beaches to the South.
