Perched on a steep hillside in southern San Francisco, Merced Heights is a small neighborhood consisting of 22 blocks. By San Francisco standards, it is a later developed neighborhood, as most homes here were constructed in the 1940s and 1950s. For the most part, the streets are lined with uniform, single-family row houses, but a few detached properties are also available.
Life in Merced Heights offers a slower pace than other parts of the city. Families with children love to visit Merced Heights Playground and Brooks Park. While there isn’t a commercial district in Merced Heights, you’re in search of major retail stores and restaurants, the Stonestown Galleria is only a mile away. Merced Heights offers a residential sanctuary that you just can’t get in other San Francisco neighborhoods.
