Portland’s Best Neighborhoods: Healy Heights

If you like breathtaking views, a family-friendly suburban vibe, and expansive homes and grounds, then look no further. Shrouded in the hills of Southwest Portland, Healy Heights features larger, custom-designed houses in a variety of architectural styles, offering views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mt. Saint Helens.

Tucked away among winding roads and towering, mature trees, residents enjoy a comfortable, rural atmosphere while still only a few miles from downtown Portland. Healy Heights’ scenic hillsides make it an excellent choice for health-minded walkers and joggers who can use the terrain to their advantage, while nature lovers have their pick of parks in the area. The largest, the Marquam Nature Park, boasts 178.25 acres for hikers and birdwatchers alike to bask beneath a canopy of bigleaf maple, Douglas fir, red cedar, and western hemlock.

Oaks Amusement Park and the serene Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden—which has attracted visitors from all over the country since its inception in 1950—are a short drive away across the Sellwood Bridge.
