It's funny to think about what Portland used to be like a long time ago! Goose Hollow got it's name because in the early times of Portland , wild geese used run free throughout the wooded hollow in the Tualatin Mountains . In fact, there was something called the Goose Hollow Wars- people fighting over the geese! Now it has become one of the most densely populated areas in Portland . The neighborhood league is working hard to make it a people friendly area to live in- and has done a great job bringing it back from it's residential downturn during the 2 nd half of the 1900's. There are 6 new condo projects in the area- Neighborhood: The Allegro, the Civic Concos, The Clay Street Commons, the Jefferson, the Manhattan Tower and the Shannon
