The small Bayview Heights neighborhood is situated in the southwestern corner of the expansive Bayview, bordered to the west by the 101 freeway and to the east, Candlestick Point.
The city’s Muni light rail reaches into the Bayview district offering residents increased accessibility to the city-center, supporting both recreational and professional opportunities. And with the 101 running along the entire western border of Bayview Heights, there is convenient freeway access.
Just as in its sprawling northeastern neighbor – the Bayview – the Quesada Gardens Initiative, an urban gardening movement that started in 2002, serves as a main focus for the community. The award-winning project was launched by just a few Bayview residents with the vision of a socially-just, sustainable community achieved by empowering the residents to define their own environment while connecting with others.
This quaint tight-knit community has access to sweeping views from every corner, thanks to its location. Neighboring districts like Candlestick Point and the larger Bayview district offer residents close proximity to restaurants serving a variety of foods, essential stores and an abundance of authentic mom-and-pop storefronts.
As a small sliver of the bigger Bayview neighborhood, residents here have embraced the opportunities presented by redevelopment driven by the city. Bayview Heights is a residential corner in a big city, with all the charms of small suburban living.
