North Park

North Park is an up-and-coming community popular amongst San Diego youth for its thriving culture in the arts and locally-owned eateries. Its central location and affordable housing continue to draw people into North Park and boost economic development in the area. While not quite as active as Hillcrest, North Park offers more space to those looking for a home in a hip urban environment. Balboa Park lies to the south-west of North Park, so residences bordering this area tend to be in high demand.The neighborhood features many apartments, but there are also blocks with single-family houses only. Northparkscene.com has good information about the area if you are interested in learning more.
