Friday Night Fun

The nightlife scene isn't as vibrant in Glen Park as in other neighborhoods in the city, which is not a bad thing. The lack of nightlife greatly contributes to its residential setting and peaceful vibe that families love. But that doesn't mean you can't find a good hangout spot. Along Diamond Street you can find a casual bar that plays sports games and music. For the art crowd, there is a local bookstore that offers poetry readings and sometimes features local authors during the evening hours.

The Perfect Sunday

The perfect Sunday in Glen Park would be spent in the various parks and green spaces in the neighborhood for a leisurely walk or invigorating hike. Strolling through Billy Goat Hill Park for a scenic view of the entire neighborhood or taking the kids to the playground are great outdoor activities. Afterwards, have brunch at a restaurant on Diamond Street or head over to San Jose Avenue's commuter station to catch a train ride to explore other areas of the city. Another option would be to explore Glen Canyon Park for additional outdoor recreation.
