Uphill from the “the Haight”, the terrain rises sharply to encompass several a number of upscale neighborhoods that include Ashbury Heights, Parnassus Heights, Corona Heights, and Clarendon Heights.
At the summit is a mini-park called Mt. Olympus, great for dog-walking and picnicking. The neighborhood was originally developed in 1911 as part of a tract called Ashbury Park. This area boasts beautiful hills, winding streets, magnificent trees, and some of the most breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the city. The close proximity of the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Park provide a wealth of recreational opportunities, from boating to biking on miles of scenic trails.
