North Park is a neighborhood in San Diego, California, as well as a larger “community” as defined by the City of San Diego for planning purposes.
The neighborhood has Park Blvd. and University Heights to the northwest, Florida Canyon and both University Heights and Hillcrest to the west, Balboa Park on the southwest, Switzer Canyon and South Park to the south and on the east by I-805 and City Heights.
The North Park sign can be seen at 30th Street and University Avenue, and this intersection is often considered to be the heart of the neighborhood.
The area traces its roots back to the late 1800s when Joseph Nash, a San Diego merchant, sold 40 acres northeast of Balboa Park to James Hartley, who planned to develop a lemon grove.
Although North Park is a neighborhood of mixed architectural styles from many eras, one area of note is the Morley Field area of North Park. Named for its proximity to Balboa Park’s Morley Field Sports Complex, this area is lined with turn-of-the-century Craftsman Bungalows and California Bungalows. Because many of the homes were designed by renowned designer and builder David Owen Dryden, the area is the site of the “Dryden Historic District.”
Forbes magazine once named North Park as one of America’s best hipster neighborhoods, noting that “culturally diverse North Park is home to Craftsman cottages, cafes and diners, coffee shops, several microbreweries, boutiques, and the North Park Farmers Market. Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times said: “North Park has all the ingredients for the cool school: It’s culturally diverse and has art galleries, boutiques, trendy bars with handcrafted cocktails and local brews, and foodie-approved eateries.”
