Grant Park Neighborhood Guide
The Grant Park community has a family-friendly feel, with quiet, residential streets lined with comfortable family homes. The gem of the neighborhood is Grant Park, with large mature trees, and a nice playground, as well as a dog park area. Grant Park adjoins Grant High School, and has lit tennis courts, a pool, a track, and lots of playground equipment for kids. Grant Park is conveniently located near coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping in popular commercial areas lining Broadway, and along Fremont St. in the Beaumont-Wilshire, Irvington and Alameda neighborhoods. Also nearby in the Hollywood district, you will find additional shops, restaurants, and the popular neighborhood Trader Joe's market.
Besides visiting the park, neighbors also enjoy walking through the hills behind 35th and Siskiyou for beautiful views, and exploring the hillside stairwells that take you to the top of the stunning Alameda Ridge. Definitely drive under the trees on Knott Street between 33rd and 42nd Avenues in spring time to enjoy the show of cherry blossoms, and in the fall to enjoy the maple leaves! Also, this is an excellent neighborhood for summertime yard sales.
Grant Park offers a wide range of home styles, from classic Old Portland style homes to Craftsman Cottages, Cape Codes, Bungalows, Colonials and more. Along the tree-lined residential streets, you'll find that homes are well cared for, and yards are nicely landscaped and well maintained.
