 About South West Portland Neighborhoods


Arnold Creek is just north of the city of Lake Oswego and borders West Portland Park to the west, Markham and Marshall Park to the north, Collins View and Tryon Creek State Natural Area to the east, and Lake Oswego and the unincorporated Multnomah County enclave of Englewood to the south. Tryon Creek is an awesome forest with miles and miles of trails that go all over- even down to Lake Oswego city center! So you could technically walk from way up at the top of the hill, down to Lake Oswego, grab some coffee and a cookie, and walk back up home! Part of Maricara Natural Area is in Arnold Creek.

Corbett-Terwilliger-Lair Hill The neighborhood goes along the Willamette River- a long, narrow strip of land that is four-miles long- beginning directly south of downtown Portland and ending at the Sellwood Bridge- going up the hill towards Barber Blvd and down to the Willamette River . The north waterfront used to be a vacant, industrial area right on the river. It spread out going south along the bank of the Willamette , until it ran into John's Landing. A beautiful trail ran along the river, beginning at Willamette Park in John's Landing- but when it reached this industrial land, it ended, sending it's travelers out into the street until they could reconnect with the trail closer to downtown.

John's Landing is the area between the Sellwood Bridge and the south waterfront area- going up the hill a little away from the river. The streets go straight up from McCaddam till they can't go up the hill any farther. There are lots of restaurants and businesses here- also Willamette Park. It's one of my favorite areas because of the proximity to the river, trails and downtown. There are classic old houses here and lots of newer condos that over look the river!

Multnomah Village is called the Village in the heart of Portland . It makes you feel like you are in a quaint little old fashioned town in the west hills. Winding cozy streets, lined with cute little bungalows and cottages, are perfect for long walks, and strolling into the cute little town of Multnomah Village to get a cup of coffee at one of the cafes, or a sandwich or salad at one of the bakeries or delis, do some wine tasting, looking at beautiful art at one of the galleries. Some people want to be near the Village just so they can get their daily fix of homemade bread at the Grand Central Bakery.

SW Waterfront What I think of when I think of the SouthWest Waterfront is the new area where they are building the aerial tram and the big OHSU buildings. I have written alot more about this area if you go to the Corbett-Terwilliger. It is changing so quickly, and will continue to as the buildings are finished, the trails are finished, and new restaurants, cafes and cool little shops come in. They are talking about having a senior living quarters there in one of the buildings so that the seniors can have good access to OHSU and the school-hospital can do studies and have good access to watching how the patients do. I think it's an awesome idea! As our generation gets older, we need to conquer more of the diseases of old age. Portland is right up there on the cutting edge!
