Claiming its historic roots on land that once belonged to the Crocker Estate, this neighborhood is defined by Amazon and Crocker Avenues as well as Mission Street and McLaren Park.
Pride of ownership runs deep in Crocker Amazon, and you’ll see evidence of this in the area’s beautifully landscaped lanes, attractive homes and meticulous yards.
On the rise
Many of Crocker Amazon’s single-family homes feature at least 10 feet of space on either side — a rare find in a City whose homes typically stand just inches apart from each other.
Winding streets and a racially diverse population characterize this family-friendly neighborhood that boasts tons of outdoor space which includes:
McLaren Park: A welcoming sight at the edge of the neighborhood, McLaren Park offers plenty of green space where families can relax, exercise, or simply enjoy a bit of serenity close to home. Second in size only to Golden Gate Park, McLaren Park boasts a golf course, two lakes, trails for joggers and hikers, a public pool, a reservoir, and the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater.
Crocker Amazon Playground: Having recently undergone a full makeover, Crocker Amazon Playground now offers five full-sized, well-lit soccer fields, as well as a baseball and softball field and basketball, tennis and Bocce courts.
Fans of the Grateful Dead will be pleased to know that Jerry Garcia grew up in Crocker Amazon. Did the area’s generous mix of sun and fog inspire their hit single, “Touch of Grey”? You be the judge.
One of the City’s more affordable, on-the-rise options, Crocker Amazon is ideal for active families who love the outdoors and crave a private space that they can call their own.
