Bernal Heights

Family-friendly Bernal Heights sits on the site of a former cow pasture and dairy, and its smaller Victorians offer great northern views of the city and sunny weather. 

Located just south of the Mission District, the neighborhood includes undeveloped open space Bernal Heights Park, a beloved place for dog walkers. At the foot of Bernal Heights, Precita Park offers a playground and large expanse of mown grass for families with young children to romp around.

The retail center of Bernal Heights can be found along Cortland Street. Small, funky, one-of-a-kind boutiques, bookstores, and gift shops are interspersed with ethnic restaurants that range from French to Nepalese to Salvadoran. Local bars include neighborhood favorite El Rio, which hosts live music, Wild Side West and its fireplace, and the down-home The Lucky Horseshoe.

Local transit is provided by numerous Muni bus lines. A BART station at 24th and Mission streets is also within walking distance form some portions of the neighborhood.
