Visitacion Valley is a neighborhood located in the south eastern quadrant of San Francisco, in the U.S. state of California.
The Visitacion Valley is roughly defined by McLaren Park to the West, Mansell Blvd to the North, Bayview Hill and Candlestick Cove to the East, and the San Francisco / San Mateo County line to the South. The streets of this neighborhood straddle the border between San Francisco and Daly City, hence Visitacion Valley partially blends in with the adjacent Daly City neighborhood of Bayshore. The grounds of the Cow Palace, straddling the San Francisco/Daly City border, is partially within Visitacion Valley.
Vicitacion Valley takes its name from Rancho Guadalupe la Visitacion y Rodeo Viejo, a large tract of land that also included the Bayshore district of Daly City, the city of Brisbane, and San Bruno Mountain.
