Parkside enjoys a prime location to the Pacific Ocean’s east and south of Golden Gate Park. In addition to being one of the least well-known neighborhoods in San Francisco, Parkside’s claim to fame is the fact that it has the most community parks per capita. Its convenient location makes Parkside feel like a relaxed suburb of the city. With neighborhood homes averaging slightly under one million dollars, and with San Francisco just a short drive or bike ride away, the neighborhood is truly a hidden gem.

The neighborhood of Crocker — also called Crocker-Amazon by the locals — is conveniently located between San Francisco and Daly City, one of the city’s large suburbs. Living in San Francisco’s south-central peninsula and having ample access to public transportation are huge advantages. Homeowners in this area enjoy access to grassy parks that dot the neighborhood, diverse architecture, and a close-knit feel. If you’re looking to live in a comfortable community in the heart of the city, Crocker may be perfect for you.
