Fairmount Springs is a lovely little neighborhood off Fauntleroy in West Seattle. Wondering exactly where? Here’s the Wikipedia entry for both Fairmount Springs and Fairmount Park:
“The Fairmount Park neighborhood of West Seattle in Seattle, Washington, runs along both sides of Fauntleroy Way SW from SW Graham Street in the south to SW Edmunds Street in the north. Neighborhood features include Fairmount Playfield–a city park–and Fairmount Park Elementary School, part of the Seattle Public Schools system. The enclave of homes on 40th and 41st Avenues SW between SW Juneau and SW Brandon Streets is known as Fairmount Springs.”
Fairmount Springs has a WalkScore of about 70. From most areas of the neighborhood you can easily walk to Starbucks, Trader Joes, Thriftway, the amazing Bakery Nouveau, Than Bros Pho, the Morgan Junction and the Alaska Junction. If you are visiting be sure to visit Easy Street Records as well, an excellent place for a weekend brunch. And of course the West Seattle Nursery is the only place to buy your garden goods.
