Glen Park Station

Glen Park Station is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco, California, at the intersection of Bosworth and Diamond Streets. It consists of an underground island platform. Interstate 280 is located on the south side of the station. This is the only station in San Francisco to have parking.

The station was designed by Corlett & Spackman and Ernest Born in the brutalist style. Born also designed the station graphics. Service began on November 3, 1973. The November 1974 Architectural Record wrote of the station:

Born designed a marble mural at the west end of the mezzanine. "100 pieces, few of which are cut at right angles, in warm brown and red-brown tones, make it up". The mural is prominently featured in a scene of the 2006 Will Smith movie The Pursuit of Happyness.
