The big park in the neighborhood is now McLaren Park. The park's beautifully situated, occupying a hilltop with views of the bay on one side, and Glen Park on the other. It is also one of the wildest parks in San Francisco, it would appear. It tends to be rather empty. The vegetation and paths are quite rough. The park on the whole feels quite unloved. A neglected park in a neglected corner of the City, with Excelsior on one side, and Visitacion Valley, Bay View etc. on the other. The micro-demographics of San Francisco are as numerous as its micro-climates.
