"Nice place to raise a recreation focused family."
Pleasant, quiet street on Bay Farm Island. Not much in the way of businesses nearby, but Channing is walking distance to a small shopping center with a Safeway, a few restaurants (including a great sushi place), and a few shops. Local schools are solid. Parks and recreation opportunities are excellent, there's a number of running and biking trails that wind through the neighborhood, as well as a cheap municipal golf course. Also ferry service direct to the Embarcadero in San Francisco is only a 2-3 minute drive away, though other public transportation options are extremely limited.
