The area west of Twin Peaks that stretches west to 19th Avenue and Highway 1. is made up of Forest Knolls, Midtown Terrace, Forest Hill and West Portal. This community enjoys cool breezes from the Pacific and spectacular sunsets year round. Though primarily residential, the neighborhood is also the home of Laguna Honda hospital, public long-term care facility. Midtown Terrace Park, Sunset heights and Hawk Hill Park are a few of the outdoors public areas. The West Portal commercial district is a thriving shopping and dining hub considered the area’s centerpiece. The streets have a distinctively small town convenient on the K or the M Muni lines. Take Muni going south to get to San Francisco State University or Stonestown Shopping Center.
