Central Richmond

What used to be rolling sand dunes as far as the eye can see is now an orderly neighborhood of tidy homes. Views of the Golden Gate Bridge are a welcome surprise from the lucky parts. Proximity to the park appeals to those with canines and kids.

    Central Richmond Neighborhood Vibe

    Bounded by California on the north, Park Presidio on the east, Fulton on the south, and 32nd Avenue on the west, it’s appealing for people who want easy access to Golden Gate Park and the multitude of restaurants and shops on Geary, Clement, and California.


    Popular Central Richmond Home Styles

    There’s a wide variety of home styles in the Central Richmond, with many single-family homes as well as small condominium buildings and larger apartment buildings along the main thoroughfares. Most of the residential lots in the neighborhood are 25’ wide and the homes are attached to their neighbors. Marina-style homes proliferate here, which are single-family homes with the living room in front, a split bath in the hallway, and two bedrooms plus a sunroom in the back.


    Getting Around in the Central Richmond

    While there has been talk for decades about adding light-rail service on Geary, for the foreseeable future the main public transportation options for the Central Richmond consist of several Muni bus lines that serve both north-south and east-west routes. Car commuters to the North Bay can hop on Park Presidio to head to the Golden Gate Bridge, and those who drive to the South Bay can across Golden Gate Park to 19th Avenue and on to I-280.

    More About the Central Richmond

    The entire Richmond district used to be nothing but sand dunes, but after the 1906 earthquake that devastated downtown San Francisco, development boomed to provide new housing for displaced residents from the east side of town. Adolph Sutro was one of the first major developers in the district; he built the Sutro Baths in the Outer Richmond in addition to many of the homes throughout the Richmond. People with kids and dogs appreciate proximity to Golden Gate Park and its multitude of trails, meadows, playgrounds, and sports fields. And while it’s easy to forgo a car in this transit-rich neighborhood, most of the single-family homes have a garage.
