Sunnyside

Neighborhood Overview

Sunnyside

More affordable than Glen Park or Bernal Heights, Sunnyside offers single family homes in a serene neighborhood with great proximity to Glen Park Village, the BART station and easy freeway access.

Sunnyside is primarily a residential district, but it is served by a small commercial strip along Monterey Boulevard. Being adjacent to Glen Park means that attractive shopping and dining options are never too far away. The City College of San Francisco has a campus within the bounds of the neighborhood that attracts much of the traffic in the area.

For its size, Sunnyside enjoys an abundance of recreational opportunities. Nearby Balboa Park is something of a hidden treasure, boasting playing fields, tennis courts, a playground and indoor swimming pool. The Sunnyside Recreation Center underwent a remodel in late 2007, and is a popular spot for families with younger children.

The neighborhood is also home to City Landmark #78, the Sunnyside Conservatory. Built in 1898, it is currently undergoing a major renovation thanks to the efforts of the Friends of the Sunnyside Conservatory organization. They aim to have work completed this fall so that the familiar landmark can once again serve as a community gathering place, hosting jazz concerts, art classes and private events.

One thing to note: the name Sunnyside is something of a misnomer. The neighborhood's original developer, Behrend Joost, was being rather optimistic when he dubbed his subdivision Sunnyside; the neighborhood gets its fair share of fog, particularly in the summer months.
