Diamond Heights Reviews

Wonderful area to live in. Reminds me of Mill Valley but with breathtaking panoramic views of the San Francisco . Really convenient area to the financial district, the freeway and BART, Muni bus Service . Diamond Heights Shopping center has a Safeway, Post Office, Bank of America,Cafe Etc. .Nearby Christopher Park has public tennis courts , baseball park , dog walks and children's playground. Also easy access to Glenn Canyon , which is really scenic and beautiful to hike in . Noe Valley and Glen Park are close by with individual unique shops and restaurants. Diamond Heights is a terrific area !

A lot of green spaces - the parks, the stream and wooded areas set this area apart from other areas of San Francisco, yet it has convenient access to the financial district, freeways, public transportation, good restaurants and shopping. A lot more laid back feeling living here, too.
