West Portal is a charming San Francisco neighborhood that retains a timeless feel with a slower pace and tranquil lifestyle just west of Twin Peaks. The properties in the area are characterized by rows of detached single-family homes on peaceful tree-lined streets bordering either side of its central commercial street, West Portal Avenue. Aptly named after the streetcar portal connecting to the SouthWest quadrant of the City, West Portal is still an incredibly convenient transportation hub for residents of many West Side Neighborhoods.
A main highlight of the area is Stern Grove, a 33-acre green space located just southwest of West Portal. This outdoor space offers abundant dog runs for your furry pals, as well as tennis, bocce ball, and putting. During the summer months, the park hosts free Sunday afternoon concerts on its renowned Concert Meadow.
