Bay Park residential neighborhood got its start in California’s post-World War 2 real estate boom, with the first subdivisions built in the 1950’s as affordable housing for returning G.I.’s. The area’s central location and panoramic views of Mission Bay made it extremely popular with homebuyers and quickly turned Bay Park into the thriving residential community it is today.
Bay Park covers approximately 3 square miles and is served by two zip codes - 92117 North and East of Clairemont Dr and 92110, South of Clairemont Dr. Bay Park is a relatively hilly area affording many of the homes have stunning views of Mission Bay to the west and Tecolote Canyon in the east and south.
