Buena Vista Park/Duboce Triangle
There's much to love in this tiny sliver of San Francisco. Duboce Triangle is bounded by Market Street to the south, Hayes Valley to the north, and is just northeast of the Castro. Two of its points are bustling Muni streetcar stations, offering quick and easy access to downtown. The neighborhood is graced with charms that make it feel like an oasis in an urban landscape. With flat streets and light traffic, Duboce Triangle is very accessible for bicyclists; the popular bike path known as "The Wiggle" runs through the neighborhood, and packs of cyclists can be spotted streaking past the area's gracefully adorned Victorian and Edwardian single family homes and multi-unit buildings.
Just one block west of Alpine Terrace is Buena Vista Park, the oldest official park in San Francisco, established in 1867, and east of Alpine is Duboce Park, a grassy park popular with dogs and their owners, which sports a new children's playground at its western end. This is a relatively warm part of town, as Twin Peaks and Buena Vista Heights block much of the fog, and it's not unusual to see people lingering outside at sidewalk cafes, showing off their furry friends or sharing neighborhood news. The neighborhood also benefits from its proximity to the businesses on Market Street, where you can find all the basics including dry cleaners, organic foods, and a gym. The nearby historic F-line streetcars take more easy-going commuters and tourists between the waterfront and the Castro. Buena Vista is an ideal place for those seeking a relaxed, yet vibrant, home base.
