Glen Park, San Francisco, California

Glen Park, San Francisco, California

Glen Park is a small neighborhood in San Francisco, California. It is at the southern edge of the hills in the interior of the city, to the south of Diamond Heights and Noe Valley, west of Bernal Heights, and east of Glen Canyon Park. The intersection of Diamond Street and Bosworth Street is generally considered the center of the neighborhood. Because of Glen Park's small size and mom and pop stores, restaurants, and saloons, the neighborhood is often described as having a village atmosphere. The neighborhood is served by a small storefront branch of the San Francisco Public Library. A new library was completed in late 2007, complete with new condos and an upscale natural foods market.

Transportation

Interstate 280 and the Glen Park BART station are both located at the southern edge of the neighborhood. Glen Park is served by the Muni bus lines 23, 26, 35, 44 and 52 plus the J Church Muni Metro line.
