Glen Park: SF’s Hidden Gem

Glen Park gives the feeling of being in your own secluded small village without compromising accessibility. Charming and picturesque, it is lined with coffee shops, organic markets and privately-owned small business boutiques. On top of it all, it offers about 70 green acres and miles of nature trails through its forested hillsides. Couples, empty nesters and families would enjoy the single-family-home residential options here. Professionals commuting in and out of SF will not find this hidden gem inaccessible at all.


Glen Park is at the southeastern edge of San Francisco’s central hills. The neighborhood’s streets follow the hill’s contours down to a small commercial district (“downtown Glen Park”) at the intersection of Chenery and Diamond streets.

It borders Diamond Heights 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 Outer Mission to the south, along Bosworth Street.



The main shopping streets are in the intersection of Diamond Street and Bosworth Street. Notable miscellaneous local favorites include Perch, Cheese Boutique and Glen Park Hardware Store, to name a few. Dining options such as Manzoni, and Le P’tit Laurent are also standouts.
