About South Park

South Park is located east of Balboa Park and was one of the first suburbs of Downtown San Diego. Serious development in the South Park neighborhood started around 1905 with the extension of streetcar service by the Bartlett Webster developing company.

When taking a stroll through South Park you can feel the heart and soul that goes into the eclectic mix of over 70 independently owned small businesses that operate in this charming, tree-lined neighborhood. New and old businesses alike work together to create a healthy business district for visitors near and far to enjoy.

Come and explore one of San Diego’s favorite urban neighborhoods.  In South Park you will find good eats, the ultimate selection of wines, craft beers & cocktails, remarkable coffee shops, unique shopping experiences and the best in wellness, beauty and other services.
