Something for everyone in the heart of the City
There is a genuine small town feel in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco. For an area with a major BART station, and thousands of commuters coming and going throughout the day, Glen Park offers a rare sense of tranquility in the city.
The district, with a village-like feel and a main area of only about three blocks, has a wide assortment of food, nature and access to other areas of the Bay (thanks to BART).
According to the Glen Park Community Plan, adopted by the Board of Supervisors, “the neighborhood combines many of the best features associated with dense urban neighborhoods with the characteristics of a small town.” For San Francisco, this is a good outcome.
Glen Park boasts restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, including Italian, French, Japanese, Mexican, Thai, and American comfort food. For cheese lovers there is the Cheese Boutique and Canyon Market with a complete selection of cheeses, both locally made and from around the world.
To satisfy a sweet tooth, many people head to Destination Bakery in Glen Park that offers muffins, pastries, breads and pies. With the holidays around the corner, Destination Bakery might come in handy for Thanksgiving or the holiday season.
If you want to get away from the concrete and “head for the hills,” Glen Park is just the right place, too. The 70 acre Glen Canyon Park offers a peaceful respite from hectic city life. With benches to relax and enjoy the views, this is just the place for humans and animals alike!
