Historic Railroad District

With over 20,000 rail passengers entering San Luis Obispo annually, gaining an impression of the City through its historic railroad yard, the Railroad District, located near the Downtown area, influences San Luis Obispo’s economy, transportation and urban character. The Railroad District Plan  prioritizes open space and historic preservation, safe pedestrian and bicycle connections, aesthetics and plentiful public parking.

This area is well connected by the Railroad Bike Path and Morro St. Bike Boulevard to Downtown Area and Cal Poly University. Newer, mixed use structures in the area reflect the historically urban and industrial style, housing creative and tech businesses, restaurants and residential spaces.
