Bernal Heights

On the site of a former cow pasture and dairy sits Bernal Heights, one of the last neighborhoods to be "discovered" in San Francisco. Bernal and its stock of smaller Victorians offers great views of the city looking north, sunny weather, and a family oriented neighborhood that is slowly transforming from its blue-collar roots to an neighborhood congenial to artists, political progressives and professionals who enjoy the homey lifestyle of Bernal.

Bernal is bounded by two parks. The largest is the undeveloped open space Bernal Heights, beloved of dog walkers and makeshift soap box derby racers who host an underground race down the curving closed roads. At the foot of Bernal, Precita Park offers families with young children a playground and large expanse of mown grass to romp around in.
