Visitacion Valley is located in southeastern San Francisco and takes its name from Rancho Canada de Guadalupe la Visitacion y Rodeo Viejo, an enormous parcel of land that included Brisbane and the Bayshore district of Daly City. This area is known colloquially as “Viz Valley,” and is a neighborhood in transition. The Visitacion Valley Redevelopment Area was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in 2009, and includes retail, residences and parks to revitalize the neighborhood. Local walking tour guide Cynthia Cox states, “within the next few years Valley residents look forward to completion of a new branch library and to finalizing the beautification of the Valley through the greenways that spill down the hillsides.” Condos can be found that were built by noted developer Joseph Eichler. A book entitled Images of America: San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley is rich with the history and treasures of the area.
