Proximity to parks, room to roam, and the Pacific Ocean at your front door. Downtown is a quick (and probably crowded) L-Taraval ride away, and car commuters can hop on 19th Avenue to head south. Like its northern twin the Sunset, there’s more fog than on the east side of town, but that keeps things cool and comfy.

Parkside Neighborhood Vibe

Close to it all but not smack dab in the middle of it, the Parkside is predominantly residential with a sprinkling of commercial areas where it’s possible to grab a coffee or a beer, pick up some fresh produce, or enjoy a meal at your favorite neighborhood restaurant. Taraval is the commercial hub of the Parkside, which is bounded on the north and south by Ortega and Wawona/Sloat, and Sunset and 19th Ave. on the west and east.


Popular Parkside Home Styles

Single-family homes are at the top of the housing pyramid in the Parkside, with some condos and tenancies-in-common in the mix as well. The majority of the single-family homes are on 25’ wide lots, but there’s a section of this neighborhood with larger lots and fully detached homes. Most were built in the early 1900s through the 1940s, give or take a couple of decades.


Getting Around in the Parkside

Car commuters appreciate easy access to 19th Avenue and points south, and also to the north. The L-Taraval light rail runs through the neighborhood to the beach on the west side and to the Caltrain depot at 4th & King on the other side of town. Several muni bus lines also serve the neighborhood.
