Glen Park’s prosaic name stems from the dramatic canyon park at its heart. Nestled up against the east face of Twin Peaks, it’s a cheerful hillside neighborhood with narrow streets and turn-of-the-century homes that often sit high above curbside. Sunnyside sits just to the southwest above and below Monterey Boulevard as it heads out to the Westwood neighborhoods. This corner of San Francisco offers a wide range of housing stretches of arts and crafts bungalows on streets like Hearst and Staples along with contemporary view homes and the occasional Victorian on the streets above Monterey. Glen Park’s architecture is predominantly Victorian although it boasts some dramatic newer construction with arresting architecture above and below Laidley Street on its east side.
