Bernal Heights

The area we call Bernal Heights was once the site of cow dairies and grazing pastures. One of the last great neighborhoods to be "discovered" in San Francisco, Bernal is making the transition from a traditional blue-collar settlement to a hospitable enclave of artists, young families, and left-leaning political life. It owes its growing desirability to its exceptionally homey setting and inspiring city views.

Home to great parks, this community is beloved by dog owners and hikers alike. The largest park, called Bernal Heights, occupies the crest of the hill and is a breezy respite for area residents who enjoy fresh air and pristine views of downtown San Francisco and the bay. Another, Saint Mary's Playground, resides at South Bernal and is a favorite for young children and families, who find the playground and expansive fields to be a perfect afternoon setting.

Any visitor must make their way along Bernal's cozy retail main street, Cortland Avenue. There you'll find a splendid blend of local bookshops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and delicious coffee shops. Some exceptional ethnic food, from French to Nepalese, can be found along this notable stretch, representing an array of eateries to delight the lucky food lovers who sauntering by.

Some favorite drinking establishments are also at your disposal. El Rio, with its steady lineup of extraordinary musical acts, Wild Side West with its fantastic fireplace, plus the country and blues music venue Skip's Tavern, are all sure to invigorate. MUNI bus service out of Bernal toward downtown is easy to find on Mission Street, which delineates the western edge of Bernal. You are also walking distance from BART at Glen Park or 24th and Mission.
