"I work in the South Bay and access to freeways is convenient. It's more challenging to get downtown because it requires a bus ride and then BART to be efficient."

"some dog owners don't pick up after their dogs and there's hardly any dog parks around bernal heights. if your dog isn't good off leash, you're limited to dog parks."

"Bernal Beast pet store has great variety of pet food and treats. Bernal hill with its no-leash policy and open space is a great place to take your dog. Merchants in Cortland are all dog friendly "

"I’ve lived in Bernal for almost 7 years. It’s like a village in the city with friendly merchants and familiar inhabitants. The hill is a great place to walk, and other parts of the city and the peninsula are easy to get to from here. Great public library and grocery store anchor the neighborhood. "

"Except for among the people who live here, this is one of San Francisco's best-kept secrets, and that's what's so nice about it. It has tranquility and cleanliness. The streets are not littered, and it is not too often that you will see a syringe lying on the ground as you do downtown. Bernal Heights is also built on solid shelf rock, so it's a safe place to be in an earthquake. Commuting up to this neighborhood, you'd better be ready for lots of turns and twists and hills. The higher you go, the more lost you can become if you're not from around here, but it's actually fun getting lost in this neighborhood."

"It's a dog-lover's paradise. There's so much space for walking a dog here—probably 50 acres on the hill alone. You'll be exhausted when you're finished walking that."

"You are in a more quiet, residential part of the city (one neighbor has chickens) but still close to vibrant neighborhoods like the Mission for food/drinks/culture"

"There's a park that is a favorite spot for dog owners to bring their dogs to because it's specifically a 'leash free' zone. It's a pretty large park too."

"As more people move in and out of the area, the streets have become a little more crowded with traffic at certain hours of the day. It's most noticeable when dinner time approaches and people are coming to eat at the restaurants on Cortland Ave."

"I think what makes this neighborhood unique is its mix of old and new. You can find small old-style Victorian houses and large modern homes in the same area. Also, the Alemany Farmers' Market is within walking distance from where I live. Every Saturday, local farmers bring their produce to sell, and on Sunday there is a flea market."

"There is a library and elementary school in the area as well as parks for children to play in. The neighborhood is relatively safe as long as parents keep an eye on their kids."

"We are so lucky to have craggy Bernal Hill in the middle of everything we do in the neighborhood. We love to picnic at the top of the hill, the wind whipping around us, looking out at a 360-degree view of the city."

"Bernal is a dog-friendly neighborhood. The hill itself is an off-leash area, and dog owners playfully disobey the law and allow dogs off leash in Holly Park, too. (There is an unwritten rule that you don't allow your dog into the baseball area.) Bernal Beast is a locally owned store that sells all the equipment you will need."

"It's a very tightly knit community—everyone seems to know each other. Its main street, Cortland Avenue, is about four blocks of boutique shops and cafes. There's a fair each year called Fiesta on the Hill and they show movies in the park a few times a year."

We were assigned J Serra in the lottery system and decided to stay after our tour and considering logistics- and are so happy we did! The school building is brand new this school year and will continue to improve over the next few months: our garden will be renovated, including expanding to around the playground; the concrete "yard" will be repaved; and the new library is BURSTING at the seams with new books- nothing but great news! Our kid's Kindergarten teacher takes them across the street to the beautiful Holly Park for yoga and other outdoor activities. The school may be "urban" but it's nestled into a quaint little corner and knows how to tap into neighborhood assets. I have to also put a plug in for our PTA! After hearing about the high-pressure PTA culture at other schools, I'm grateful for ours. We have regular, manageable fundraisers that allow our economically diverse families participate in different ways. As parents, we all know that TIME IS MONEY! So our annual dollar amount totals may not look high, but if you start counting the number of cookies baked and hours of parent time donated, you would be impressed. Everyone gives what they can and when that happens, our kids thrive. We start every morning as a school on the yard for announcements, and then the pledge or school chant, depending on the day. We're a small school and just a few months in, already feels like a true community.
