About Mission Bay
An ancient Native American Ohlone village, Sitlintac, once stood on the shore of Mission Bay. Mission Creek originally flowed from a lake near Mission Dolores into Mission Bay. The houseboat community near the Giant’s ballpark floats on all that’s left of that creek. Mission Bay’s 325 acres were filled in from the 1860s to the early 1900s and it became a railroad and shipping center.
Today, a brand new community is taking shape at Mission Bay. Condominium towers, parks, stores, restaurants and the biotechnology research campus of the University of California, San Francisco are here now or have started to be built. A school, more parks, and much more will be coming soon. Mission Bay is San Francisco’s newest neighborhood.
