Merced Heights is a charming residential neighborhood located in the southwestern portion of San Francisco. Despite its quaint size, it boasts three public outdoor areas (Merced Heights Playground, Brooks Park, and Lakeview and Ashton Mini Park.) In addition to these areas, it is also close to the expansive Lake Merced recreational area, San Francisco Zoo, multiple golf courses, and the Pacific Ocean. Its location provides easy access to the North, South, and East Bays via nearby 19th Avenue and Interstate 280. Carless transportation options abound, including multiple Muni light rail lines and BART's Daly City Station. Shopping for all essential needs can be done at nearby Ocean Avenue or Stonestown Galleria. The neighborhood features an architecturally diverse mix of housing styles, including Craftsman, Marina, Art Deco, and Midcentury Modern. All of this culminates in a neighborhood that is quintessential San Francisco.
