  WHAT’S LIVING IN Fauntleroy LIKE?

Fauntleroy is a neighborhood in West Seattle with a small-town relaxed atmosphere. This is an affluent, residential community of single-family Craftsman-style homes. There is a smattering of restaurants, bars, and shops around, but no real commercial center.

But that's just fine with the neighborhood's residents: their real passion is the community. Fauntleroy hosts a number of community fairs and events – including the annual release of thousands of young Salmon into Puget Sound every spring from Fauntleroy Creek.

As you'd expect of a neighborhood overlooking the Sound, there are incredible views here and a number of great parks from which to enjoy those views. Fauntleroy Park and Arroyos Natural Area are just two spots where you can get outdoors for a run or hike and take in the scenery of the water, islands to the west, and Olympic Mountains.

Fauntleroy is bordered on the north by Lincoln Park, on the east by Roxhill, on the south by Arbor Heights, and on the west by Puget Sound.
