Westwood Park is an affluent residential neighborhood located in southwestern San Francisco, California, near St. Francis Wood and City College of San Francisco. Westwood Park was built as an upperclass neighborhood for downtown merchants (well-represented by the Craftsman style of architecture, with a mix of smaller, more modest Crafstman- and Mediterranean-style bungalows for working-class families on a series of concentric oval-shaped streets. The ovals are bisected by Miramar Avenue, which features a landscaped median planted with pines. Most streets in this neighborhood have a suffix of "wood," such as Eastwood, Northwood, Rollingwood, and so forth.

Westwood Park is bordered by Monterey Boulevard (to the north), Ocean Avenue (to the south), Faxon Avenue (to the west) and Phelan Avenue (to the east).
