If it weren’t for the BART station adorning its name, it would be easy to miss Glen Park, a low key residential, mostly hillside, community with winding streets that typically lead into the Village. Families love living here, not only for the village vibe, but also for the convenience of easy freeway access to travel 280 to Silicon Valley and for walkability to BART to access downtown and the East Bay beyond within minutes. Bordering Noe Valley and Bernal Heights, this compact hillside neighborhood is a bit more shrouded in fog than Noe and Bernal, but it’s sure to please nature lovers with its proximity to various parks including the expansive 70-acre Glen Canyon.
