The Parkside District came to be in 1905 when William Crocker formed the Parkside Realty Company and purchased some tracts of land on the southwestern part of the City. Some of the lands came from the estate of Adolph Sutro. It was mostly sand dunes stretching out to Ocean Beach. Over the years, the Parkside and the Sunset were developed separately until they eventually converged.
The Parkside district is so named for its bounty of public parks. There are more parks per capita than any other part of the city, and they include Pine Lake Park, Parkside Square, Larsen Park, McCoppin Square, Mc Coppin Park, Stern Grove, and Charlie Sava Pool. The large number of parks, including the dog park at Stern Grove, makes this an ideal neighborhood for kids and dogs. The Parkside also includes some top-performing public schools, such as Diane Feinstein Elementary and Lincoln High school. Saint Ignatius, one of the state’s best parochial high schools is also in the Parkside. Access to great parks, the San Francisco Zoo, and great schools makes the Parkside a fantastic neighborhood for families with children of all ages.
