Today we head north from South Park to, well, North Park.




North Park is bordered on the northwest by Park Boulevard and University Heights, on the west by Florida Canyon and both University Heights and Hillcrest, on the southwest by Balboa Park, on the south by Switzer Canyon and the South Park neighborhood, and on the east by Interstate 805 and City Heights. The pre-Interstate 805 boundary of North Park was widely considered to be 35th Street, which is now part of City Heights.



North Park is a culturally diverse neighborhood, though it is predominately white (57%) non-married people with at least a college degree.

The median household income in South Park is $77,140 per household.



The geography of North Park is relatively flat which makes it ideal for residential neighborhoods. The only exception is Switzer Canyon on the south which allows the homes along it views of beautiful Downtown San Diego.


Real Estate Market

North Park is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego, and as such is home to one of San Diego’s largest districts of Historic Homes, the North Park Dryden Historic District. The man who built many of them, Edward F. Bryans, has been classified as a Master Builder by the city of San Diego. The area is known for it’s Craftsman and California Bungalows, many of which are designated as historically significant homes. Of the 136 homes in the District, 104 were approved by the Housing Resource Board as contributing resources to the District. While the homes in this neighborhood are predominantly single family residences, there are also some small apartment and bungalow courts. The area is heavily gentrified and that trends looks to continue as it is one of San Diego’s most desirable neighborhoods.

South Park has a median home price of $576,000
