Glen Park is a cheerful, hillside neighborhood named for the dramatic canyon park found at the heart of the community. Nestled against the eastern face of Twin Peaks, Glen Park features narrow streets and turn-of-the-century homes that sit high above the curbside. Architecture here is predominantly Victorian, although dramatic, newer construction types are popping up around Laidley Street. Home styles range from contemporary properties to craft bungalows and everything in between.
Glen Park is easy to get to via the Glen Park BART, and there is a quaint commercial shopping center a few blocks north of the station. The community is popular for families with children, as it offers excellent schools, and since nightlife options are minimal, it is a quiet neighborhood. The perfect place to settle down and raise a family, Glen Park offers plenty of charm.
