Corona Heights

Corona Heights neighborhood in San Francisco, learn about it in just 59 seconds:

Many people think of Corona Heights as a part of the Castro neighborhood, but it is a distinct subdistrict of the San Francisco mulitple listing service. The Corona Heights park and playground is at the geographic center of the neighborhood, and the dog park is popular with dog owners throughout the city. The neighborhood is roughly bounded by Roosevelt to the north, Clayton to the west, Market St. to the south and Castro street to the east.

Corona Heights is a hilly neighborhood, and many of the homes offer phenomenal views of downtown, the San Francisco bay, and the southern hills.  The Randall Museum, located directly below the Corona Heights park and playground, offers an eclectic mixture of  arts, crafts, sciences and natural history for the young and young at heart. Are you a train buff? The Golden Gate Model Rail Road Club has made its home here for over fifty years.

Corona Heights has an eclectic mixture of single family homes, condos, tenancies-in-common, and unit buildings,with classic Victorian homes juxtaposed next to minimalist modern construction heavy on glass and metal details. The closest commercial area is the Castro, although the Haight Ashbury and Cole Valley neighborhoods are also within walking distance (depending on your definition of walking distance). The neighborhood is traversed by several bus lines, and the Castro and Duboce Park muni stations are also within walking distance – as long as you don’t mind hills!
