Portland’s Best Neighborhoods: Portland Heights

The northeastern part of the Southwest Hills neighborhood (in the West Hills), Portland Heights is perched above Goose Hollow, overlooking downtown Portland.

Made up of majestic and stately homes with breathtaking views, Portland Heights is one of Portland’s oldest and most elegant neighborhoods.

An excellent home base for families, residents of Portland Heights enjoy proximity to downtown Portland, Highway 26, and Washington Park which includes the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Children’s Museum, the Portland Japanese Garden, the International Rose Test Garden, the Hoyt Arboretum, and the World Forestry Center as well as seemingly endless paths and open green spaces perfect for family picnics.

Marquam Nature Park and Forest Park are also just minutes away—offering, even more, opportunities to explore the best of Portland’s natural beauty.

Parents of young children won’t have to travel far—the highly rated Ainsworth Elementary School is right in the neighborhood. Nearby West Sylvan Middle School, and Lincoln and Wilson high schools serve older children.
