Glen Park is a dense district that is becoming more and more famous each day as tech workers troop in to San Francisco. The district is set below the sharp, wild slopes of the Glen Canyon. The district has the ambience of an urban village.
The district has a library; mom-and-pop retailers available at Diamond, Bosworth and Chenery streets; and coffee shops, bakeries and fine food merchants. Indigenous cuisine is the trend here, from Le P’tit Laurent and Osha Thai Café to La Corneta Taqueria. New arrivals to the district are advised to visit the independent book store Bird & Beckett Books and Records, which focuses on the history and culture of San Francisco.
Glen Canyon Park offers cosmopolitan recreation, rock outcrops for bouldering, a community recreation and relaxation center, ball fields and tennis courts and playgrounds for kids.
Glen Park also offers its residents easy access to public transportation. There is a BART Station at the intersection of Bosworth and Diamond streets and it is within walking distance and it makes for easy commuting to downtown San Francisco. The J-Church light-rail train is also within walking distance. Commuting to Silicon Valley from Glen Park is easy as the district is located at Interstate 280 which allows it convenient access to Highway 1 and the Pacific Ocean beaches to the south.
