Glenwood Neighborhood, San Rafael
Nestled into the hills of Point San Pedro Peninsula is the San Rafael neighborhood of Glenwood. With Peacock Gap Country Club to the east, the San Rafael Bay to the south, and China Camp State Park to the north and west, Glenwood is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life; yet shopping and amenities aren't far away.
Fifty percent of Glenwood is comprised of undeveloped land in the hills above the housing developments. With this surrounding open space, Glenwood is an outdoorsman's dream. China Camp State Park, with fifteen miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, is adjacent to Glenwood - offering the community a certain sense of seclusion as well as recreational activities. The bay is handy for water activities, and Victor Jones Park is a popular recreational center with a playground, basketball courts, a baseball diamond, and picnic facilities.
Children living in the neighborhood attend Glenwood Elementary School. Glenwood School has been recognized as both a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School and is considered to be one of Marin's top elementary schools. Older students attend Davidson Middle School, and then move on to either San Rafael High School or Terra Linda High.
