In 2009, Lakeside One neighbors started working with SAFE (Safety Awareness For Everyone, a non-profit with a range of free safety services to residents, sfsafe.org). We started with Beachmont Drive and slowly expanded to include the homes on Lagunitas, Cranleigh, Junipero Serra, Woodacre, and 19th Avenue (East).
All residents are welcome. There are typically 1-2 large gatherings per year with the primary purpose of neighbors getting to know each other better.
In 2020, we created an official nonprofit, Friends of Lakeside Village, sponsored by San Francisco Parks Alliance.
A small group meets monthly to work on projects. If you would like to roll up your sleeves, email email@example.com.
Lakeside was built between 1936 and 1950. It includes the Lakeside Village commercial corridor. Some businesses such as Villa d’Este have been operating since the 1940’s.
Lakeside is bordered to the North by Sloat and to the South where 19th Avenue and Junipero Serra merge. It is divided into three areas: Lakeside I, II, and III. Lakeside One is furthest North between Sloat and Ocean.
