Glen Park 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 5, 1973. The November 1974 Architectural Record wrote of the station:
The dramatic volume of the station–one of the deepest in the system–unfolds at the escalator wells, where the full height (60 feet or 18 m) of the structure is visible. During the day, daylight from the skylights, one over the mezzanine, the other over the end escalator, pours in to the lower platform, an extraordinary sight in a subway.
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 film The Pursuit of Happyness.
