West Portal Playground


A $1.5 million renovation project in 2005 saw the park’s original clubhouse expanded and upgraded into a sleek, modern community space, perfect for public meetings, parties and a host of recreational programs. The park includes a picnic area, playground and large play field. The building also features artwork commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission Public Art Program. “The Secret Garden,” a series of hand-carved tiles by artist Aileen Barr, depicts various flora and fauna native to the area, including leaves, flowers, plants, insects and birds.
