Visitacion Valley Neighborhood Vibe
Once the neighborhood where Swedish immigrants settled, Visitacion Valley suffered from urban flight and closure of Hunter’s Point Naval Base. Single-family homes and sunnier weather near the city’s second largest park are balanced against safety concerns and a lack of neighborhood infrastructure.
Popular Visitacion Valley Home Styles
Single-family homes are the primary type of property you’ll find in the neighborhood. Most homes are attached and were built between 1910 and 1960, although there are plenty of exceptions. The former Schlage Lock site is slated for redevelopment with affordable and market rate housing mixed with retail, commercial, and public park spaces.
Getting Around in Visitacion Valley
The T-Third light rail began service to the neighborhood in 2007. There are several bus lines that serve the neighborhood, and the eastern side of the neighborhood is partially bordered by the 101, making access to this freeway straightforward. San Bruno Ave. in the adjacent Portola neighborhood has the closest shopping district.
