San Francisco-Sunset Community Information

Inner Sunset

Inner Sunset is credited by many residents as their favorite neighborhood for its ethnic diversity, close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, and for the eclectic and all-around funky atmosphere of this artsy neighborhood. Most residents include singles, University of California-San Francisco students, and young families. Many appreciate the omnipresence of the neighborhood's cozy diners and mom-and-pop shops, grocery stores and restaurants. A few local sights of interest in Inner Sunset include St. Anne of the Sunset, Grand View Park, and Sunset Heights Park.

Outer Sunset

The Outer Sunset neighborhood can be found in the southwestern corner of the city and is often disregarded in many of the city's guidebooks mostly because of its distance from the city center and because it's a relatively new neighborhood. Nevertheless, the area is a vibrant suburb that many families, singles and professionals have come to appreciate over the years. Residents take care of all of their retail needs on Irving Street between 19th and 27th avenues. Nearby areas of interest include Fort Funston, Lake Merced, Mount Davidson Park, the San Francisco Zoo, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, the Parkside Branch of the San Francisco Public Library, Stern Grove, and Harding Park Municipal Golf Course.


The Parkside micro neighborhood is also located in the southwestern corner of San Francisco right by Outer Sunset. While residents of Outer Sunset take care of all their shopping needs on Irvine Street, Parkside residents head down toward Taraval Street between 15th and 30th avenues toward Ocean Beach.

Central Sunset

Bounded by Quintara Street to the south, Lincoln Way to the north, Sunset Boulevard along the west and 19th Avenue to the east, Central Sunset is one of the bigger micro neighborhoods within the Sunset District. The Sunset Reservoir can be found in Central Sunset, along with Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary School, and many independently owned businesses.
