Glen Park

Once dismissed as ‘south of Noe Valley,’ Glen Park is now embraced and adored for an I-280 on-ramp to Silicon Valley and a BART station to everywhere else. Start your day with coffee at a not-a-corporate-copycat coffeehouse in the heart of the village, stroll on to the neighborhood public library branch and then off for a hike/jog/bike/climb through Glen Canyon Park? Yes you can in Glen Park.

    Neighborhood Vibe

    It’s a close-knit community, with many residents calling the commercial heart of the neighborhood “the Village.” Residents love the area for the homey shopping area, the proximity to Glen Canyon Park, and plentiful transportation options. A tad foggier than some central neighborhoods, Glen Park is ideal for those who want a central location in a friendly community.

    Popular Home Styles

    Single-family homes are intermingled with condos in small buildings in Glen Park. Homes from eras ranging from Victorian to Edwardian to mid-century modern coexist peacefully, and a circa-2006 condominium building tops the neighborhood grocery store in the heart of the Village.

    Getting Around

    The commercial center of Glen Park is very walkable with a few fairly flat blocks of shopping and restaurants. The neighborhood is home to a BART station which provides easy (and reliable, when compared to Muni) access to downtown San Francisco, the East Bay, and the northern area of San Mateo County. Commuters who drive also appreciate its I-280 and 101 access.

    More About Glen Park

    Immediately south of Noe Valley, Glen Park is popular for its multitude of transportation options and its close proximity to Glen Canyon Park. Known to some as Glen Park Village because of its tight knit community feel, Glen Park is a popular choice for many people who want to be in the central part of San Francisco. The neighborhood is home to a BART station, which provides easy access to downtown San Francisco, the East Bay, and the northern area of San Mateo County. Commuters who drive also appreciate its I-280 and 101 access.


    The neighborhood is bounded on the west side by Glen Canyon Park, which offers numerous recreational opportunities. At the bottom of the canyon are ball fields, tennis courts, and a recreation center with basketball courts. Further north the canyon becomes “wild” and offers plenty of trails that are perfect for an urban hike or to let your dogs off leash for some healthy exercise. It’s a wonderful place to lose yourself in nature for a while – you’ll quickly forget that you are surrounded by a bustling urban metropolis.


    The commercial center of the neighborhood can be found at the intersection of Diamond and Chenery streets, with restaurants, stores, and a grocery store forming the heart of the shopping district.


    Homes for sale in the neighborhood are primarily single family, although there is a mid-size condominium building that was built in 2006 in the heart of the village, and condominiums in smaller buildings that have been converted to condominiums from multi-unit buildings.


    The neighborhood has a reputation for being fairly sunny, although fog does creep in to the district more often than some of the other central neighborhoods.
