Three Reasons to Live in South Park, San Diego

One of the first suburbs of downtown San Diego, South Park is known for its historic Craftsman and Spanish Colonial architecture, its tree-lined streets, and its friendly neighborhood feel. This lovely neighborhood is extremely walk-able and dog-friendly, with a charm unique among urban areas.

Here are three reasons why South Park, San Diego might be the perfect neighborhood for you:

1. The community.

South Park’s residents take a lot of pride in their tight-knit neighborhood and are very active in the life of their community. Just like the song, South Park feels like a place “where everybody knows your name”! One of the neighborhood’s annual highlights is the SoNo Fest and Chili Cook-off, held the first Sunday in December. This volunteer-run street festival has exploded in popularity since it started a few years ago and features a restaurant chili cook-off from dozens of local restaurants, a craft beer and wine garden, live music, kids’ play area, and a number of local vendors. The event was started by a group of parents at McKinley Elementary School, and all proceeds go to South Park’s McKinley School Foundation to fund school improvements and programs.

2. The ability to "shop local".

South Park is home to over 70 independently owned small businesses. The neighborhood boasts a variety of excellent restaurants and bars, including Piacere Mio, Buona Forchetta, Hamilton’s Tavern, and The Rose. There’s boutique shopping at Graffiti Beach and Gold Leaf, affordable local art at The Next Door Gallery, and organic and natural products at The Grove. In addition, the South Park business community hosts quarterly Walkabouts, when local businesses stay open late and offer special deals to highlight the neighborhood’s culture.

3. The combination of quiet and city life.

While South Park is located just four miles outside of downtown San Diego, its quiet and tree-lined streets can seem like a world away. The neighborhood is pedestrian-friendly, with a walk score of 70. It’s also a short walk to neighboring Burlingame, North Park, and Golden Hill, as well as to the southeastern end of Balboa Park.

South Park consists mainly of single-family homes, with a few condos and small apartments mixed in. The median home price in South Park (in early 2018) is around $850,000. If you’re looking for a vibrant, friendly neighborhood, contact me about South Park today!
