About North Park
“Diversity” describes the friendly residents of North Park, including natives and recent immigrants, young and old, married and
single, straight and gay – an array of races, nationalities, and religions. “Diversity” describes the buildings and architectural
structures in the district that range from Renaissance Revival of the 1910s to Post Modern of the 1990s. And “diversity” describes
the businesses in North Park where you’ll find an interesting mix of specialty shops, restaurants, second hand stores, offices, and essential services.
North Park Main Street (NPMS) is a private non-profit organization charged with the revitalization of the North Park Business Improvement District (BID), North Park’s Downtown and the historic heart of the community. “Main Street” is a system of community-based economic revitalization that was devised by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to save historic and significant commercial buildings. The Main Street program is based on the principles of self-determination and inclusive community participation in the revitalization process. NPMS is supported by its member businesses, funds business-related activities, and improvements that benefit the business district.
Most recently, North Park has received national recognition through magazine and news articles. Our community is being noticed as a destination for dining, shopping, and the arts. An October 2009 article in Men’s Journal magazine named San Diego the #1 Beer City in the United States, adding “30th Street in North and South Park is easily
the nation’s best beer boulevard”. In November 2009, The Advocate magazine declared, “Ten years in the making, North Park buzzes as San Diego hippest hood”.
And, in December 2009, the New York Times featured North Park in the Sunday Travel section, giving credit to “…young, independent business owners have set up shop…
and transformed North Park into one of the city’s most vibrant and diverse districts.”
NPMS works closely with residents, business owners, and volunteers from throughout the community who form the backbone of our program. Staff and volunteers focus energy on four broad areas known as the Main Street Four Point Approach: Design, Economic Restructuring, Organization, and Promotion.
