Noe Valley is located in the central part of San Francisco. This neighborhood is affluent, well situated, and convenient to many destination neighborhoods. Noe Valley is a very walkable community and is often referred to by locals as “stroller town” due to the number of pedestrians with strollers, dogs, and families with children that create plenty of pedestrian traffic. There are two main commercial corridors, Church Street and 24th Street, that are lined with restaurants, upscale shops, bookstores, banks, pharmacies, nightclubs, and cafes. 

The weather in San Francisco is rarely cold, although it can be cool and damp and a light jacket, preferably waterproof, is recommended when strolling through the region. Noe Valley is located next to the Twin Peaks which sit on the west side of the area and block frequent San Francisco fogs and winds, creating a microclimate. This microclimate makes the area warmer and sunnier than other San Francisco neighborhoods and more amenable to pedestrians.

The Upper Douglas Playground, a 7-acre park, is located in Noe Valley and is inviting for both two and four-legged visitors. One section has recreational facilities with a playground, tennis, and basketball courts and is connected by a steep path to an upper terrace where a dog park is located. A rocky wall helps separate local pooches enjoying the park from the street. 

A little to the northeast in an adjacent neighborhood, Mission Dolores Park provides 16 acres of natural space. There are palm trees, open lawns, recreational facilities, music festivals, and performances in this beautiful park. The park has elevated terrain providing great views of the city and dogs are welcome on the park's numerous paved pedestrian paths to enjoy the scenery. 

Just west of Noe Valley, Twin Peaks Park is a short drive away. There is lots of local wildlife, hiking paths and spectacular views. Be prepared for strong winds and big climbs as the terrain is steep.
