About Excelsior

The Excelsior neighborhood is a large residential area with modest single-family homes and has one of San Francisco's only golf courses at John McLaren Park. This neighborhood is full of working-class families that have been in San Francisco for decades so it's common to see just as many senior citizens as children. It's a quiet, sometimes forgotten neighborhood just above the Mission District with many hills.
