East of Balboa Park and south of Meade, consists of a hodgepodge of mini-neighborhoods. The commercial area, particularly down 30th Street, has become a culinary corridor with many excellent restaurants. North Park’s proximity to Balboa Park's recreational facilities in Morley Field, playgrounds and dog park add to its charm. North Park has an eclectic mixture of homes from large, stately homes and quaint bungalows, many of which are historical, to areas of apartments and condominiums. Here and there you may find a very contemporary home.
One of my favorite parts of North Park is around St. Augustine and McKinley schools. The area has an unusual quality of light as if it had just rained and the sun came out. It reminds me of a watercolor with a pale yellow wash. Another of its micro neighborhoods is Burlingame, famous for its curving streets and pink sidewalks.
Located near CA 163, I-805, CA 94, and I-5, from North Park you can find a variety of routes to wherever you want to go.
