The West End Neighborhood is located in the heart of Santa Rosa, California. It’s a vital, small community that embraces old fashioned neighborhood living.
We are a living example of what today’s urban planners are trying to recreate- a small downtown neighborhood with local businesses easily accessible without a car. Our vintage way of life has once again become in vogue.
The West End folks are always participating in fun neighborhood events ranging from art gallery openings, summer bocce matches and picnics, historic walking tours and local improvement activities.
Please take a moment to browse our site and see why we love our little neighborhood. The West End where urbanism, preservation, art and people come together.
