Southeast San Francisco Apartments for Rent
Southeast San Francisco sits in the southeast corner of the city, with the San Francisco/Daly City border to its south and the San Francisco Bay to its east. The area extends north to Cesar Chavez Street and west to Highways 280 and 101. It contains several residential neighborhoods, public parks, and Candlestick Park stadium.
In 2007, Muni opened the new T-Third Muni Metro light rail line. In addition to providing a fast trip downtown and linking Southeast San Francisco more tightly to the rest of the city, the new Metro line sparked a renaissance in the Third Street shopping corridor and the surrounding areas.
Bayview Park is a small park on top of a hill with fantastic views of the city and the bay. McLaren Park is a large park with recreational facilities, a golf course, and lots of trails going through open space and around a lake and a reservoir for walking and jogging.
A long-abandoned naval shipyard in Hunters Point is now an artists’ colony where 300 artists live and work.
Candlestick Park used to be the home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team and is now the home field for San Francisco’s football team, the 49ers. The Candlestick parking lot is a popular place for pre-game tailgate parties. Candlestick Park has earned a spot in history for being the place where the Beatles played their last commercial concert in 1966.
Next to the stadium, the 170-acre Candlestick Point State Recreation Area contains hiking trails with beautiful bay views, picnic areas, and fishing piers.
