Welcome to the website of the Westwood Park Association, a non-profit corporation whose membership consists of property owners in the Westwood Park neighborhood of San Francisco, California.
Westwood Park is a rare and mostly
intact collection of over 600 homes built in the 1920s and the 1930s. The
completion of the Twin Peaks Tunnel in West Portal allowed for Westwood Park
to become a reality as "a model home community for the family of average
means." The bungalow-style homes are within the borders of Phelan Avenue,
Monterey Boulevard, Faxon Avenue and Ocean Avenue.
Homes in Westwood Park have been featured in various bungalow magazines,
newspaper articles and books.
An article from 1923 in The Home Designer described Westwood Park:
"...justly considered as one of the show places of San Francisco and a model
of the modern American home community...Its beautiful name was suggested by
its location in the "west" of the city and the high eucalyptus woods that
surround the tract, tempering the invigorating and bracing breezes that
sometimes sweep in from the Pacific Ocean...it has a gentle but nevertheless
decided slope toward the higher ground in its rear at Monterey Boulevard
along Miramar Avenue. Outside this main parked avenue, Westwood Park has not
a single straight street."
Through this website, the Association keeps its members informed about activities taking place in and around Westwood Park. Please take your time, look around, and contact us if you have suggestions on making this website more useful.
