Ingleside Terraces is another one of those best-of-both-worlds neighborhoods found in the Southwestern area of San Francisco. It was developed around the old Ingleside Racetrack, which once attracted jockeys from all over the country. Urbano Drive marks the old track and is very visible on any map. It's rumored that the home at nearby 280 Byxbee Avenue was once the jockey's clubhouse, and the very 1st automobile race in California was held at the racetrack in 1900. The neighborhood officially opened in 1913, offering Edwardian era San Franciscans a true residential park.
The Ingleside Terraces area offers modern city dwellers a quiet, peaceful, almost suburban atmosphere with easy access to urban amenities. This is a very walkable neighborhood, with Ocean Avenue shopping and services and the Stonestown Galleria Mall within blocks. Muni's K-line streetcar runs right along Ocean Avenue and straight to West Portal with all of its shops and dining to the north, or down to the Glen Park or Balboa Park BART stations and City College to the south. San Francisco State University is also nearby. Adjacent Junipero Serra Boulevard offers commuters easy access to the Peninsula. The Ingleside Terraces Homes Association remains very active, hosting community-building events like garage sales and holiday caroling. Its newsletter, The Sundial, is named after what some suspect to be the world's largest sundial; it was erected by Ingleside Terraces' developer in Entrada Court as a publicity stunt and has been diligently keeping track of the time since 1913.
