Mission Terrace is one of the southernmost neighborhoods in San Francisco, with its eastern border lining up along the expansive Excelsior district and to its south, the Outer Mission.
Mission Terrace was one of San Francisco’s early planned residential neighborhoods. Some believe it was the first development of affordable housing for working class people. The advertisement at left is from Baldwin & Howell’s real estate brochure circa 1911. It declares that Mission Terrace will feature “the most beautiful avenue in San Francisco devoted to inexpensive homes.”
Its natural topography makes it one of the sunniest areas in San Francisco. And while it is at the furthest stretch of land in the city, its location allows residents to travel to every corner of the city with ease, thanks to the Balboa Park Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in its southwestern corner, the Glen Park BART station just to the north, and its entire western border lined by I-280
Balboa Park itself is a sprawling outdoor green space tucked into its western border. This large park includes an indoor pool, four baseball fields, a soccer stadium, tennis courts, a picnic area, and boasts a sand playground with climbing structures.
