Lakeside / Stonestown
The shimmering Lake Merced, lush golf courses, and natural-habitat zoo make the Lakeside district one of the most scenic living choices within San Francisco. Lakeside is bordered by Sloat Street to the north, Junipero Serra to the west and 19th Avenue to the east. Lakeside is a relatively long and narrow region of the City and is less than a 10 minute drive to the Pacific at Ocean Beach. Lakeside residents take advantage of their close proximity to several well-groomed golf courses, including the Olympic Club Golf Course, the San Francisco Golf Course, and the Harding Park Golf Course, which all surround Lake Merced, the City’s largest lake. Also contained within this district is the beautiful and sprawling campus of San Francisco State University.
