Dominican Neighborhood, San Rafael

Dominican is an upscale, historic San Rafael neighborhood located slightly northeast of downtown San Rafael. Bound by Highway 101 to the west and the Montecito shopping area on the south, Dominican is close to shops and services and is a commuter's dream.  The open spaces found on the north and east of Dominican provide the community with natural beauty and plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities.

Dominican is a community for walkers.  Morning treks on the hiking trails of nearby Barbier Park or evening strolls through the Dominican University campus are popular pastimes for residents both young and old.  Another popular local destination is the University's Conlan Recreation Center.  The facility, which includes a pool, a fitness center, tennis courts, and a gymnasium, is open to all Dominican residents.

Children living in the Dominican neighborhood are in the San Rafael City Schools District. Coleman Elementary, which includes grades K-5, is within walking distance for most children in the community.
