LIVING LA PLAYA – what it’s like to live at the outer edges of Outer Richmond

September 15, 2022

The western edge of San Francisco is oft overlooked as a suburban sprawl far removed from the bustle of city life. Yet, after spending only a few hours along the Great Highway and its tributary streets there is life and community thriving along this oceanfront corridor. Visitors and residents are drawn by its proximity to the beach, small-town appeal, and clean streets. 

 
 

Parks in Richmond

 
The growing number of young families in this area have simply too many parks to choose from and close proximity to schools. Enter Golden Gate Park at Fulton St, a refuge twenty percent larger than New York’s Central Park. View seekers can take the short jaunt up Sutro Heights while hikers and dog walkers can enjoy the coastal trails from Point Lobos along Land’s End trail. Beachgoers have unfettered access along the coast past the San Francisco Zoo to Fort Funston. Keeping an eye on tides and rogue waves is highly recommended. Don’t miss a visit to China Beach an underused gem with protective sides from windy days.
 

Culinary Options

 
It’s not just parks. There are plenty of culinary delights with quirky mom-and-pop shops to choose from. It’s only a short jaunt to inner Richmond filled with restaurants, bars, and assorted businesses with their polished cosmopolitan flair. 
 
If living steps from Ocean Beach sounds appealing look no further than the 160 residences at La Playa St, three mid-rise buildings 825, 855, and 875 dubbed the Ocean Beach Condos. The buildings are notable for their oceanfront views, easy access to various outdoor activities, and amenities.
