Streets of San Francisco – Bernal Heights

The Workshop’s offices look west to the “Lion King” vista of Bernal Heights, one of many “micro” neighborhoods of San Francisco.

Only developed after the 1906 earthquake, Bernal has been and remains home to a wide collection of people. Traditionally, the Workshop has served a number of preschools in the area. We also have a long history with Paul Revere College Preparatory School, where we serve preschool aged kids through 8th graders both during and after school.

Nestled between La Lengua and the Alemany Flea and Farmers Market (the latter of which has been operating since 1947!), Bernal enjoys a “banana belt” climate of more sunshine and less fog then much of the rest of the city.

Bernal is home to a number of parks including, Precita Park near Cesar Chavez, Holly Park on the southwest side and Bernal Heights Park which hosts the locally coined “Sutrito” tower.

If you enjoy sunshine, close knit communities and sweeping views of San Francisco, we recommend checking out the Bernalwood blog for more local flavor. You can also read the Wikipedia article about Bernal Heights here.
