Westwood Park Neighborhood Vibe
Let’s BBQ at my bungalow! Single-family homes with large front yards set back from the sidewalk and a backyard your child can bounce a ball farther than three feet. Bounded to the north by Monterey Blvd. and other residential neighborhoods, it’s the closest of San Francisco’s residence parks to the Balboa Park BART, and is served by the shops and transit of Ocean Avenue. The homes are no less special but typically a little smaller than those to the north and west.
Popular Westwood Park Home Styles
Until recently, this was an exclusively single-family home neighborhood. Crimson, a midrise condo building at 1490 Ocean Avenue, is the newest addition of homes to the neighborhood. Westwood Park is known for its quintessential collection of bungalow homes, and the neighborhood was one of the first to collaborate with the planning department around neighborhood design controls to preserve the historic look and feel of the area.
Getting Around in Westwood Park
It’s a west-side residence park that was built with the assumption that if you can afford the house, you can afford a car. Monterey Blvd. on the north or Ocean Ave. on the south have good access to freeways. Homes near Ocean Ave. or the City College side of the neighborhood have easy Muni light-rail access and are a short distance from the Balboa Park BART station.
