Now: At the absolute south edge of San Francisco, Crocker Amazon meets Mission Street one last time at Geneva Avenue (which becomes Ocean Avenue to the west). Faded pizza, takeout spots and bars are clustered around the intersection, and then everything begins to look very suburban as the homes rise up onto the high ridge where Daly City begins. Crocker Amazon Playground, adjacent to the Excelsior and McLaren Park features several sports fields, and clubhouse, and appropriately, a playground.

Then: Crocker Amazon Park began to be developed in the 1930s when truck farmers were bought out from their leases on the land.

How To Get There: There are Mission and Geneva bus lines that cross through here, but this area is remote enough that driving is just easier. Parking is usually available along Naples Street, off of Geneva.
