I live in South Park. It's next to North Park. It's the best. for walking, feeling that you're safe, sharing in a community vibe and knowing your neighbors.
We have a few good eateries. The Station makes yummy carnivor burgers and an outstanding vegetarian one. It's dog friendly and kids can come and run around a wooden protected/fenced trolley replica. Many take yoga at Ginseng. They offer yoga for kids. Enjoy pottery studios and a terrific bookstore called The Grove. Grape Street is home to the largest acre dog park in San Diego. Grants Market sells organic coffee and Bread and Cie bakery goods on a consistent basis.
What's not to love? Buildings are well built from the 20's, and not as pricey as other areas i.e. Mission Hills. Come visit South Park ! Come to the Old House Fair on June 19.... more
If you asking if North Park is an old or young community as far as the demographics of the people, that question can not be answered without violating Fair Housing Laws.
However if you would like to know the general age of the homes, then the answer is old for California standards. I would say that the majority of the homes were built in the 1920's & 1930's. There are homes that are built earlier and some then some in the 40's & 50's.
If you are considering purchasing a home in San Diego, you may find a service that I offer helpful with your home search. You will be able to search the MLS just like an agent from the comforts of your own home 24/7. If you are interested in having this type of service available to you, please go to my website and sign up for your Free Listing Book account.
