"Quiet neighborhood next to a great park"

SW Forest Street is a short 1-block residential street that ends at Hiawatha Park, a very nice park for kids, with plenty of room to play, sports fields and courts, and a large community center. The neighborhood, itself, is fairly quiet and out of the way from the majority of West Seattle traffic. Most of the homes in the area are relatively reasonble, though there are exceptions. There are many trees providing shade, privacy and natural beauty to the neighborhood. Houses are fairly well maintained, but again, there are exceptions.

Residents have quick access to grocery stores, shops and restaurants, but aren't in the thick of it so can enjoy some peace and quiet at home. West Seattle High School is also within walking distance, and a Natural Foods Market is just on the other side of Hiawatha Park, which offers so much variety in specialty groceries. Leaving the area can be a bit of a bear, since traffic in most of West Seattle tends to be on the busy side, but the neighborhood sees relatively few non-residents.
