Much like its sister neighborhoods in the Sunset District, Parkside is a mostly residential area but with the unique distinction of having the most green areas and parks per capita than any other area in the city. With summer concerts at the Sigmund Stern Grove and numerous places to walk the dog, lounge, bike, and play, this area is a huge draw for young families and professionals.

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

Parkside retains some of the post-1945 crazes, mostly stucco exteriors, but more modern styles can also be found throughout. Condos offer slightly lower pricing than single family homes. With spotty commercial areas along Taravel Street, this is where the most cost-effective housing, relative to the area, can be found.

Where to Eat

You can find a bit of everything in this part of town but locals are mostly drawn to the authentic Italian restaurants and pizza joints that locals love. Try the Gold Mirror Restaurant on Taraval Street for authentic family-style dining. For pizza so good you'll be buying by the pie and not the slice, check out some local favorites along Portal Avenue.

What You'll See

Though typically a more reserved part of the city, with all of the green space and musically diverse roots, Parkside is the place to come for free concerts. Strolling through the parks on any given day, it's common to come across a three-person band playing to a small, appreciative crowd taking a much-needed break from their hectic schedules.

Friday Night Fun

Not necessarily revered for its nightlife, you can find the corner pubs lively with patrons. Perhaps live music is in order? Then head to local favorite, Thee Parkside, a venue for country and rock shows, full bar, and kitchen.

The Perfect Sunday

The Parkside Tavern is infamous for Sunday brunch. Fill up on french toast and mimosas, and head out to Stern Grove to walk the winding paths of old growth trees and feed the ducks at scenic Pine Lake Park. Visit The Merced Manor Reservoir, a concrete structure symbolizing the 9.5 million gallon water facility, but also local secret spot to star gaze on quiet evenings.
