  WHAT’S LIVING IN Roxhill LIKE?

Roxhill is an affordable, middle-class neighborhood in West Seattle. It's primarily a residential area with smaller single-family homes and some apartment buildings.

There are limited dining and shopping options here, and the options that do exist are located along the neighborhood's northern and southern borders, but they are good: the Reuben Sandwich at Locol Barley and Vine is allegedly the best in the city. The center of commerce is the Westwood Village Shopping Center, which is the largest shopping center in the area.

E.C. Hughes Park offers sports fields, a children's play area, a wading pool, and picnic and barbecue areas. Roxhill Park has walking trails, a skate park, and soccer and baseball fields.

Roxhill is bordered on the north by High Point, on the east by South Delridge, on the south by White Center, and on the west by Fauntleroy.

Located in the heart of the Gatewood neighborhood of West Seattle, in what we now like to call the ‘Kenyon Junction’. The Westy is not just another ‘sports bar’, but a premiere sports viewing experience accompanied by elevated pub-grub, great beers, and full bar.
