Corona Heights, a San Francisco neighborhood located north of Market Street and Eureka Valley, is considered part of The Castro and Upper Market areas. The area remains quite prosperous due to the elevation of many houses in Corona Heights and proximity to The Castro, local restaurants and city transportation. Excavation of large portions of a hill that once stretched from Buena Vista Park to Market Street was required during the construction of the neighborhood's streets.
At the top of the hill, visitors can find the Corona Heights Park which is a large open area that offers unobstructed views of downtown San Francisco and the bay. Portions of the park contain protected native and non-local plant species. Many small native reptiles, birds and butterflies also make their home in the park.
The Randall Museum containing exhibits on arts, crafts, sciences and natural history, the Corona Heights playground and a fenced-in dog park are also located within the boundaries of Corona Heights Park.
The Corona Heights neighborhood is a mile away from the Golden Gate Park which contains numerous attractions such as: the Japanese Tea House, the Conservatory of Flowers, Kezar Stadium, the De Young Museum, Academy of Sciences and the San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum.
