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.
