    Ingleside Terraces Neighborhood Vibe

    With a giant sundial and a street that used to be a horse-racing track, Ingleside Terraces has a couple of claims to fame. Now lined with stately detached homes, Urbano Drive used to be a horse-racing track starting in 1895. The sundial is the site of the Annual Sundial Park Picnic, in which local residents race each other on bicycles, chariots, and wagons.

    More About Ingleside Terraces

    Bounded by Ocean Avenue on the north, Junipero Serra on the west, Holloway on the south, and Ashton on the east, Ingleside Terraces is a posh neighborhood on the southeast side of San Francisco. Its claim to fame is a giant sundial in the middle of the neighborhood, which is the site of the Annual Sundial Park Picnic, in which local residents race each other on bicycles, chariots, and wagons. Another notable fun fact: the oval-shaped street in the center of the neighborhood bears a resemblance to a race track…because it used to be one.

    Starting in 1895, what is now Urbano Drive was a horse-racing track. After it closed, architect and developer Joseph A. Leonard planned the new neighborhood as an urban “residence park,” setting aside green space and including ornamental touches like the sundial that survives to this day. He was instrumental in getting approval for the extension of the streetcar lines through the Twin Peaks tunnel (so thank him as you’re riding Muni to downtown instead of driving across the city).
