Just south of Buena Vista Park and west of Duboce Triangle is the quaint, affluent neighborhood of Corona Heights. The area was literally cut out of the large hill that once encompassed all of Buena Vista Park and extended all the way down to Market Street. Today, the area is known for its pretty, architecturally diverse homes, which boast panoramic views, thanks to their high elevation. Many of the streets within the neighborhood are narrow and steep, quiet and tree-lined, offering just the right amount of tranquility.
However, shopping and dining are just minutes away in the nearby neighborhoods of Castro, Haight-Ashbury, and Cole Valley. Whether residents head to the shopping district surrounding 17th Street and Market Street, Cole, or Haight Street, they’ll find a wide range of restaurants and bars, mom-and-pop gourmet shops, and other retail establishments. For outdoor recreation, nearby Corona Heights Park and Golden Gate Park offer hiking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, and more. For culture, there are several internationally known museums located within Golden Gate Park, while the science and arts oriented Randall Museum exists within the confines of Corona Heights Park. ©2016 Maryann LoRusso
