University Heights

University Heights

University Heights is located between Hillcrest and North Park and runs along the rim of Mission Valley. Gone are the trolleys, ostrich farms and the original State Normal School (which later became SDSU) but still here are wide sidewalks with interesting homes and a vibrant business, theatre and arts district along Park Boulevard.

Trolley Barn Park on Adams Avenue, just east of Park Boulevard, is popular with young families and hosts free concerts on Friday evenings during the summer. This park, as noted by its name, was the site of the “trolley barn” where trolley cars went for repairs and down time until the system was replaced by busses in the 1950s. Sidewalks around the playground in the park are laid out in a pattern mimicking the local street plan, a design also echoed on the carved stone plaque.
