Outer Parkside

The land of sand dunes and surfers, slightly south of the sunset. Head south past Ortega and suddenly you’re in the Parkside, even though it looks and feels pretty much just like the homes north of Ortega! From the San Francisco Zoo to the Irish Cultural Center, welcome to life on the west side.

Outer Parkside Neighborhood Vibe

Like it’s twin to the north the Outer Parkside is part hip surfer ‘hood, and part family neighborhood, with a low-key atmosphere. The beach beckons for bonfires, dog runs, and sand-castle building. But bring your wetsuit if you want to get in the cold Pacific waves.


Popular Outer Parkside Home Styles

The Outer Parkside was a barren expanse of desolate sand dunes. Post-quake, development spread west, all the way to the ocean. Housing in the Outer Parkside is mainly single-family homes, with a healthy dose of small unit buildings and condos in the mix as well. The single-family homes are fairly standard in style: two stories, with two or three bedrooms, one or two bathrooms, and a garage on the ground level. Ocean Park is a new large condo development in the neighborhood.


Getting Around in Outer Parkside

Public transportation options consist of the T-Taraval and bus service. Commuters who drive to work downtown aren’t too far away, but expect the drive to take just short of forever because of traffic. Drivers headed to the South Bay have pretty convenient access to I-280.
