Portland’s Best Neighborhoods: Arlington Heights

One of Portland’s upscale West Hills’ neighborhoods, Arlington Heights boasts proximity to some of the city’s most gorgeously renowned parks, such as the International Rose Test Garden (with over 7,000 rose plantings from some 550 varieties), the Japanese Garden, and the largest forested city park in the U.S. at over 5000 miles, Forest Park. But even this pales in comparison when you realize that Arlington Heights is actually located within the north edge boundaries of the resplendent 400-acre, Washington Park.

Bordered by the Northwest Heights, Sylvan Highlands, Hillside, Northwest, and Goose Hollow neighborhoods, Arlington Heights is both lushly wooded and city adjacent, allowing residents plenty of time for outdoor activities from walking and window shopping in Portland’s boutique-laden Nob Hill area, to biking and even equestrian trails, or on to the exploration of its many parks, hiking trails, and natural areas (like the 183-acre Hoyt Arboretum).

One of Portland’s old grand neighborhoods filled with winding, narrow, hill-climbing roads, old-growth trees, scenic yards, and plenty of classic, historic homes ranging from Cottage, English, Tudors, and even a few ranches built in the 50s and 60s, most homes here were built before 1939 and offer stunning views of downtown Portland and the surrounding mountains.
