Tucked away between Mt. Davidson—San Francisco’s highest peak—and Glen Canyon Park, you’ll find the Miraloma Park neighborhood. This tranquil, suburban-style swath of the city is spot on for family life. It’s the rare part of town where parking is plentiful and the gently curving streets stay quiet. You can go for an undisturbed stroll along Mt. Davidson’s trails, grab your essentials along the commercial strip on Portola Drive, or drop down into the city for as much urban experience as you crave.
Despite being sheltered, Miraloma Park isn’t isolated. West Portal, Sunnyside, and even Noe Valley are short hops away. For those commuting down the Peninsula, the freeway is close at hand and, for that matter, so is Glen Park BART station. Housing runs the gamut from ultra-modern to 20s-style row houses, hitting every stop in between.
