History Walk: Is it Forest Hill Extension? WNP Event

May 13, 2023 10:00am-12:00pm (Saturday)

Join former Western Neighborhoods Project board member and historic preservation consultant Richard Brandi for a history walk through Forest Hill Extension. Part of this area on realtor’s maps contains what was, in 1914, going to be a residence park called El Por-tal Park. Ten years later it was relaunched as Laguna Honda Park but it lost its identity and was lumped with Forest Hill Extension. The adjacent residence parks of Claremont Court, Merritt Terrace, and West Portal Park were subsumed into the Greater West Portal neighborhood. This walking tour is based on Brandi’s book, "Garden Neighborhoods of San Francisco, the Development of Residence Parks 1905-1924," by McFarland Publishing.

Our journey begins at 10:00am and takes about 2 hours. Grade: mostly easy; generally level ground except for Edgehill Way

Please register through Eventbrite. $10 for WNP members (and we absorb your Eventbrite fees) and $20 for non-members. The super secret meeting location will be emailed to you when tickets are purchased. The walk is limited to 30 people.
