San Francisco’s Lake Street district is an ideal place for those who love the outdoors and are seeking a green respite with easy access to the rest of the City. And it is one of those rare areas in our urban environment where quiet family life is the norm. Stretching all the way from Arguello Boulevard to 27th Avenue, you’ll find single family homes and condos in a variety of architectural styles; this being San Francisco of course, there are quite a few Edwardian and Victorian properties to choose from. The sprawling and diverse Presidio of San Francisco is your backyard, offering endless recreation opportunities. Several parks dot the neighborhood as well. Rochambeau and Richmond Playgrounds are popular for small children and basketball players. Mountain Lake Park offers a popular dog run, tennis courts, a running trail and of course the lake, which is a charming spot to stroll on sunny days. And, of course, bike lanes running along Lake Street lead avid cyclers north across the Bridge into the hills of Marin County. Though not part of the neighborhood, the Clement Street business district is a very short walk away. A remarkable selection of cuisines and shopping can be found here, as well as a number of low key bars for the night owl in your household. Several Muni lines serve the neighborhood to whisk commuters downtown and back with ease.
