Mission Terrace is in the south-central section of San Francisco, and is one of its sunniest neighborhoods. The active and involved Improvement Association plans regular annual events such as an Easter egg hunt, Fourth of July parade, and a neighborhood garage sale. The Bridge Garden project, a community effort to enhance the streetscapes and public space, has been very successful. Grants were applied for and received from San Francisco Community Challenge, and volunteers began immediately to make things happen. Balboa Park offers a pool, playground, stadium, baseball diamonds and tennis courts. Residents of Mission Terrace enjoy easy transportation to the 280 freeway, as well as the nearby Balboa Park and Glen Park Bart stations.
