My husband and I are moving our 2 small children from Atlanta to SF. He will be working on Market St downtown. We would like to be in a family friendly area (house with yard and other kids). We would love any ideas and I am concerned that SF is not a family friendly city and that they will not have other small children to play with. We don't mind a little bit of a commute, but would prefer to stay on Bart if possible. Any ideas?? I heard that Walnut Creek is a good area. Any other areas come to mind?

Walnut Creek is a very nice area, but I wouldn't call it "close to downtown!" You can take BART from there, but it's a good 50-55 minutes each way. If you don't mind that, I'd suggest looking around the North Peninsula too... particularly Millbrae, Burlingame, San Mateo, Pacifica, and Foster City. Only Millbrae has a BART station, but the rest are an easy drive or Caltrain ride away. As for the East Bay, Walnut Creek is a good one, and so are Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and Alameda.

Now if you actually want to be in San Francisco, you could consider the following districts - Richmond, Presidio, Sunset, Marina, and Twin Peaks. Of course, this is all depending on your budget & whether you'll be renting or buying... the whole Bay Area is pricey, but I assume you already know all of that.
