VIRTUAL West Portal, Claremont Court & Merritt Terrace History Walk WNP Event

Sep 26, 2020 10:00am-12:00pm (Saturday)
COVID-19 UPDATE: This event has been changed from in-person to virtual due to an abundance of caution.

San Francisco is not known for its picturesque suburban streets, landscaping, detached houses, and setbacks to convey the feeling of living in a park. But between 1905 and 1924, thirty-six such neighborhoods called “residence parks” were proposed or built in the City. Some of the better-known ones are St Francis Wood, Forest Hill and Sea Cliff but there were many others.

WNP Board member Richard Brandi wrote THE book about them (due the end of the year by McFarland Publishing.), and he will lead you through West Portal Park, Claremont Court and Merritt Terrace for a physically distanced and refreshing tour.

Sponsored by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Project courtesy of District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. This event is free but pre-registration is required. You will receive the Zoom link in an email after registration.
